Schools across Saddleworth have either closed entirely or partly to pupils, as teachers take part in a national strike as part of a row over public sector pensions.
This was the scene outside St Mary’s Primary in Greenfield this morning, after someone put up a banner opposing the industrial action. The picture was sent in by a Saddleworth News reader.
St Mary’s was, like most local schools, closed to pupils but open to non-striking staff. A similar arrangement was in place at Saddleworth School. Some Saddleworth primaries, including Delph, Diggle and Friezland, were open for some lessons only.
A full list of how the borough’s schools were affected is available from Oldham Council here.
