SCHOOLS in Ashbourne and the surrounding area have announced their plans ahead of a strike by the National Union of Teachers on Thursday.
Council workers, carers, social workers, refuse collectors, street cleaners and teaching assistants, belonging to the Unite, GMB and Unison unions, are among those taking industrial action.
The action comes as part of disputes with the Government over pay rises, retirement ages and pensions.
These are the schools which have revealed their plans to fully or partially close so far:
Hill Top Infant and Nursery School - closed
Marston Montgomery Primary School – closed to infants, open to juniors
Parkside Community Junior School – partially closed
Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School – closed
