A number of schools across West Norfolk will be closed next week when teachers strike.
A total of 40 schools in Norfolk will be fully or partially closed on Tuesday due to industrial action.
Members of the National Union for Teachers (NUT) and National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) will be staging two walk outs in October in a row over pay, pensions, working conditions and jobs. A second strike is planned on Tuesday, October 17.
King Edward VII School in Lynn will only be open to Years 7, 11, 12 and 13.
Headteacher Mike Douglass said: “We have taken the decision on how many staff are likely to be involved in the action.
“We have to balance safety with the number of staff we have to cover on the site.”
Hilgay Primary School will be open as normal apart from the reception and Year 1 class.
St Clements High School in Terrington St Clement will be partially closed on Tuesday.
Year 11 pupils will be given two hours of GCSE maths work to prepare for an exam in November.
But headteacher John Robson will be running classes for children in Year 7.
He said: “This is a national issue which is spilling into schools.
“It is additional work for the school and children are missing out on a day’s education which is never a good thing and not what the bulk of my staff want.
“But on the other hand I understand the union’s prospective of trying to protect their members.”
Swaffham Infant School will also be closed during the strike action.
