Union locked in second Sinfin dispute

The NASUWT is locked in a second dispute with the school over its handling of teacher monitoring, which it has branded as "intrusive".

Six days of strike action had been planned on this separate issue before Christmas but these have been put on hold pending further talks.

Derby City Council has said it is taking legal action against the Government in a bid to block its plans to turn the school into an academy.
