Planned teacher strikes by members of the National Education Union has been described as "extremely disappointing" by Jersey's States Employment Board.

NEU teachers in the island are set to strike for eight days in May.

The States Employment Board claims the timing of the strikes will disrupt schools "at this key point in the academic year".

Members who teach year 11 and 13 pupils will not take part in the strike action to make sure there is no disruption to exam preparation.

The States Employment Board has gone to great lengths to seek a settlement with teachers.

The SEB says they haven't received any formal notice of intended strike action yet.

The head of the National Education Union regional branch has said teachers want a fair pay deal and to be treated with respect and dignity.
