London's mayor has secured a deal to allow Fulham Boys School to open its doors at the start of the new term in September.
Surrey Heath MP Michael Gove, who lost his job in today's reshuffle, was the architect of the controversial free school policy.
More parents in London miss out on their first choice school than anywhere else.
Toni Mfc Holmes Everyone suffers when teachers strike, children don't learn, the parents have to take a day off affecting their employers and business. They don't do anyone any favours striking. Striking should be against the law.
Helen Ellis So it's ok for them to strike and have teachers training day the day after the strike but dare a parent request a child have a day off then the parents are given a fine.
@itvlondon Education is being destroyed by Government. Look at all the recent changes, teachers' workload survey & teachers leaving.
Pupils across London are facing disruption to lessons today as teachers strike over pensions and pay. Do you back their action? Have you had to take the day off to look after your children? Tweet us @itvlondon or go to our Facebook page.
Claire Earney Up the game. One day here and there won't help, you need two/three days in a row. Perhaps Gove will listen!
@itvlondon i think they should open the school on a saturday and disrupt the teachers on a day off. See how they like it.
There are "no winners" in the teachers' strike with schools running as if it was "a snow day", head teacher Vic Goddard told Daybreak.
Mr Goddard, the principal on Channel 4's hit documentary series "Educating Essex" described his love for teaching but admitted there was no pleasing everyone with today's strike.
"I am sure I haven't pleased the union today by not having a partial closure. Heads have to make that decision - can I keep all children safe in my school?"
The National Union of Teachers claims a "significant" number of schools will stay closed in London tomorrow as teachers strike over pay and pensions. London NUT secretary Bob Stapley says the "vast majority" of its 55,000 members in the capital are expected to walk out, adding:
The messages we are getting indicate the action will be very effective. Almost every state primary and secondary school in the capital will be affected and there will be some significant closures.
It means thousands of parents will either have to take a day off work or arrange childcare. Are you affected by the strike action? Happy to be interviewed? Get in touch with us at email@example.com
