Teaching unions had planned two days of strikes this week against forced academisation at Andrew and St Francis Primary School in Willesden on Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
Today they announced that they would call off Wednesday's strike in 'an act to show good faith' in order to enable them to promote negotiations with the Interim Executive Board (the body that replaced the governors). The Unions said 'We are really hoping that this extra time will enable proper talks to take place to end this dispute.'
Thursday's strike is scheduled to go ahead and will be followed in the evening by a Public Meeting to discuss the issue. 7pm St Andrews Church, 145 High Road, London NW10 28J
