Carnforth High School is one of several across the district facing partial or full closure due to a teachers' strike.

Several schools across the Lancaster district are due to close tomorrow, Wednesday March 26, as teachers go on strike.

National Union of Teachers (NUT) members opted to take industrial action over workload, performance-related pay, pensions and the government’s approach to education provision in the UK.

According to Lancashire, Cumbria and North Yorkshire County Council websites, the following schools are due to close either partially or completely:

Carnforth Christ Church Primary School: Closed to pupils in Hawthorn Class only.

Carnforth High School: Closed to pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 only.

Halton St Wilfrid’s Primary School: Whole school closure.

Ridge Primary School: Whole school closure.

Ryelands Primary School: Closed to Years 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Melling St Wilfrid CE Primary School: Closed to Reception and Years 1 and 2.

Moorside Primary School: Whole school closure.

Morecambe Road School: Whole school closure.

Morecambe Bay Primary School: Whole school closure.

Overton St Helen’s CE Primary School: Closed to Classes 2, 3 and 4.

St Peter’s CE Primary School, Heysham: Closed to Reception, Year 1, Year 4 and Year 6.

Trumacar Nursery and Community Primary School: Whole school closure.

Holme Primary School: Whole school closure.

High Bentham Primary School: Partial closure.

Ingleton Primary School: Partial closure.

County Coun Matthew Tomlinson, KLancashire County Council’s cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “In the main, schools manage themselves, so headteachers must decide how to deal with the upcoming strike, based on the particular circumstances of their individual schools.

“We will, of course, offer support and advice, but it will be up to headteachers to make their own decisions based on staffing numbers.”
