Fifteen other schools will also be partially closed and Brent Council is recommending that parents check official school websites tomorrow morning in case of late changes.

Hank Roberts, joint secretary of Brent Teachers’ Association, said strikers were encouraged to go straight to central London.

He added: “All the unions are still very unhappy at being forced to work longer hours and earn less.

“The government say that we are all in this together but it is clear that it is not true.”
