List of schools closing in England and Wales revealed that up to 20,000 are expected to close

Tens of thousands of teachers from the National Education Union (NEU) of England and Wales are going on strike today over pay rises, affecting as many as seven million pupils.

The strikes – the first of seven days in February and March – follow failed Monday afternoon talks between Education Secretary Gillian Keegan and the secretaries-general of unions representing teachers and headteachers.

They had hoped to resolve a pay dispute that threatens to disrupt more than 23,000 schools this week.

But after the strikes were confirmed, parents and guardians across the country are now being forced to juggle their plans and work commitments while their children spend the day outside of class.
