Teachers at Birmingham school start three days of strikes

More than 30 teachers at a West Midlands school have staged the first of three days of strike action.

The teaching union NASUWT said staff at Castle Vale Performing Arts College in Birmingham say management practices are impacting on student behaviour.

Anne Brimacombe, from the union, said: "Since 2009 we've been in negotiations about the lack of support with behaviour, it is time to change this."

Sarah Heard, a teacher at Castle Vale Performing Arts College said: "We are here because we want to teach the kids, and at the moment we are not feeling that we are able to teach the kids as well as we would".
