Return of online lessons to tackle teachers’ strike

Heads plan ‘Covid-style’ classes to stop pupils falling behind


Schools plan to bring back online lessons and Covid-style classes for vulnerable children as they prepare for expected teachers’ strikes, The Independen­t has been told.

Ministers also hope schools can join together to share resources, raising the prospect of pupils being bussed to different buildings. Two of the UK’s major teaching unions – the National Associatio­n of Head Teachers and the National Education Union (NEU) – are due to unveil the results of strike ballots today. The NEU said it is confident teachers will back widespread walkouts and warned that industrial action could begin as soon as 30 January.
