The academy threat to Small Heath School has been withdrawn - now lift Simon O'Hara's suspension!
Feb 1, 2016 — On Friday 29th January Birmingham City Council informed the unions that the threat of the academisation of Small Heath School was off the table as the sponsors had walked away. This came after staff from the NUT, NASUWT and ATL increased their strike action and campaigned with parents to say that students in Small Heath are best served by their school remaining as part of the Local Authority family of schools. Staff are committed to getting the school out of special measures but for this to happen the suspension of the NUT Rep Simon O'Hara must be lifted. NUT members in the school have voted 100% in favour of striking to defend their Rep with strikes to begin on 9th February if the school refuse to end the victimisation of Simon O'Hara. We plan to hand the updated petition into the IEB and Local Authority this week so please share the petition and encourage as many people as possible to sign. We say well done to the strikers for stopping the academisation of Small Heath School and that now the LA and the IEB should lift the suspension of Simon O'Hara.
