Members of the National Union of Teachers have staged a walkout alongside other public sector workers in protest against the government’s “austerity programme”.

Only four Newham primaries have confirmed that they will be fully open today, compared to 50 schools which are fully closed.

Part-closures were confirmed at 18 other schools with the remaining 16 unable to confirm whether they are open and in what capacity.

Firefighters and council staff are also participating in the strike over a series of grievances including the government’s public sector pay freeze which limits wage increases to one per cent a year.

Trade unionists met at Stratford station early this morning before travelling to BBC Broadcasting House in central London to join forces with the London rally.

Peter Smith, divisional secretary of Newham Teachers’ Association, has suggested that the strike could be the country’s biggest since the general strike of 1926.
