Rotherham school staff stage demonstration

Have your say

Support staff on strike at a Rotherham special school demonstrated outside town council offices as part of their campaign against redundancies and poor pupil behaviour.

It is the fourth time that staff at Abbey School in Kimberworth have walked out - and they say things are getting worse.

GMB union convenor Lee Simpson said: “Staff are reporting that over 100 incidents have been reported in the last 10 days.”

Staff are seeking a meeting with school governors and the three councillors representing the area over their grievances.
