Teachers balloted by the National Education Union in England backed walkouts as part of a bitter dispute over pay and working conditions.

The NEU, the UK’s largest teaching union, had asked around 300,000 teachers and support staff in England and Wales to vote for strike action.

Schools may be forced to close if they don’t have enough staff to teach children safely. Some 11% of schools shut their doors and 20% were partially closed during the last nationwide teachers’ strike in 2016.

The first strike will be on February 1 in England and Wales, with more than 23,000 schools expected to be affected.
