IT IS business as usual for the majority of schools in the Dunmow area on Thursday despite a nationwide strike by the National Union of Teachers (NUT).

Around 6,000 schools will be closed or partially shut when teachers take strike action on Thursday.

The walkout will affect at least a third of schools in England and Wales.

It is in protest at a three-year pay deal, including 2.45 per cent from September and rises of 2.3 per cent in subsequent years.

Only Great Dunmow Primary School has a handful of teachers who will not be in school but lessons will continue almost as normal.

Helena Romanes, Stebbing Primary, Takeley Primary, Finchingfield Primary, Great Easton Primary, Great Bardfield primary, Wethersfield primary and the Felsted schools will all be operating as normal.

Pupils at St Mary's School in Dunmow will continue with an already organised school trip.

The strike is scheduled to last for 24 hours with schools across the country returning to normal on Friday.
