Schools are shut across Newham today as part of a national teachers strike over pay and working conditions.
Newham Council published a list of 26 schools that are closed, 19 that are partially closed and three that remain open.
Teachers will march from Malet Street near Euston to Downing Street in Westminster.
The unions are in dispute with education secretary Michael Gove over planned changes to teachers’ pay and contracts, working conditions and pensions.
The National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National Association of Schoolmasters & Union of Women Teachers accuse the secretary of state of refusing to listen to their concerns.
