Staff walk out for second time at Rotherham special school

Have your say

Support staff at a Rotherham special school went on strike for the second time in a week in a dispute over redundancies and poor pupil behaviour.

A one day walk out was staged at Abbey School at Kimberworth after a breakdown in talks between management and the union GMB.

Two staff members have been issued with redundancy notices in a long running dispute stretching back to the beginning of the year.

The union says the previous departure of teachers and support staff has had a detrimental impact on pupils and their behaviour, and problems are getting worse.
