Four Kingston schools will close as part of a day of strikes by teachers’ across the country tomorrow.

Malden Parochial Church of England Primary School, St John’s Church of England School, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and St Philip’s School will all be closed.

All other Kingston upon Thames schools are either open or partially open.

The strike has been called by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) over pay, pensions and workload following changes by education secretary Michael Gove.

Bob Stapley, London NUT regional secretary, said: “We have offered the secretary of state every opportunity to meet with us to discuss the very genuine concerns of teachers throughout the country but he has failed to engage in any meaningful attempt to address those concerns.

“Teachers do not take strike action lightly but they believe that nothing else will bring about the meaningful negotiations we are seeking.”
