GMB Protest In Support Of 11 School Support Staff Facing Sack At Foxborough Primary Academy

GMB members are extremely worried that children’s educational needs are at risk and cuts will have an adverse effect on the future of the school say GMB.

GMB, the union for school support staff, will hold a demonstration against the proposed job cuts of 11 teaching assistant at Foxborough Primary Academy in Slough.

The Demonstration will take place outside the school between

8.30AM & 3PM on






Asia Allison, GMB Organiser said, “Many concerned parents have already signed a petition against these 11 job cuts and many more are expected to sign in support of the vital role of support staff who are work at the school.

GMB believes that this seriously impacts the quality of educational provision within the school.

There was no meaningful consultation throughout this process. The school is rushing to push these job cuts through before the publication of the school’s financial report is released to GMB and the public.

GMB members are extremely worried that children’s educational needs are been put at risk and this will have adverse effect on the future of the school. Parents at school appreciate the professional job that Teaching Assistants contribute every day in the school and do not want to see any detrimental effects on the on-going education of the children.

School support staff remain some of the lowest paid workers in schools, in comparison the Head Executive who was awarded a salary of over £100,000 a year with increases of 10% of pay rise in 2013 and 2014.”
