The parents of pupils at a school in Wokingham were told to bring their children in to school today - because the authorities at Emmbrook Junior School would not be able to tell them in advance whether classes were cancelled.
The school said that because teachers did not have to declare their intentions until the morning of the strike, they would have to send children home if their tutors were absent. Parents at the school gates this morning had mixed reactions to the strike.
The school apologised for any inconvenience caused but said it felt this was the only way it could ensure as many children as possible got to go to classes.
