Scores of schools are expected to close or partially close tomorrow, Tuesday 1st October, as teachers stage a one-day strike against planned Government reforms of pay, pensions and education.
The two biggest teaching unions, the NUT and the NASUWT, have decided to take industrial action which will affect schools across the East Midlands, Eastern, West Midlands, Yorkshire and Humberside regions.
In the Mansfield and Ashfield area, almost 60 schools so far are set to be affected by the action, but because teachers do not have to tell their employers if they are due to strike, more could follow.
Below is the list of closures and partial closures so far, although parents who are worried about whether the industrial action will affect their child is being urged to call their school.
