A THREE-day strike planned for next week by teachers at Cardigan Secondary School has been called off.

Members of the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) had been due to walk out from February 12-15 but that industrial action has now been halted. A two-day strike planned for this week was also suspended.

Talks are continuing between the NASUWT and education officials at Ceredigion County Council following allegations of bullying and harassment at the school.

An independent inquiry set up by the local education authority to look into the complaints found there was no case to answer but put forward several recommendations.

NASUWT members and officials were unhappy at the inquiry’s outcome and vowed to carry on with their protest following a one-day strike at the end of last month.

A spokesman for Ceredigion County Council said: “Following constructive discussions between Ceredigion County Council and the NASUWT, the strike action planned for 12-14 February will no longer go ahead.

“Good progress has been made in many areas and both parties are fully committed to working with the school to revise procedures and build relationships for the benefit of staff and pupils.”

Chris Keates, general secretary of NASUWT Cymru, said: “As a result of positive discussions with Ceredigion County Council where progress has been made, as it currently stands the last three days of planned strike action at Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteifi have been withdrawn.

“The NASUWT remains committed to resolving this dispute for the benefit of the teachers and the pupils.”
