‘Sick’ teachers


Added 08 February 2019


Some work is still being done at the Coleridge and Parry School.

Scores of teachers stayed off the job yesterday at the Coleridge & Parry School and the Eagle Hall Primary School – in both instances there were claims of environmental problems.

In a continuation of action from over the last few days, teaching staff at the Coleridge & Parry School, St Peter, called in sick. A source estimated that it was about two-thirds of the teaching staff.

The NATION understands that classes went on but not as normal as some of them were combined and taught by the teachers who did show up for work.

Coleridge & Parry has been facing environmental issues – initially reported to be a rat problem – for about two weeks now, only reopening last Monday after closing for industrial cleaning. (DB)
