Teachers at a Glasgow school are threatening to strike amid allegations of a failure by Glasgow City Council to address pupils’ ‘violent and disruptive behaviour’.

The NASUWT teachers union has warned the council they will have “no option” but to consider taking such action at Bannerman High “if effective steps are not taken” to combat such behaviour “and protect the safety and welfare of teachers”.

They note that teachers at the school in Baillieston have already “engaged in action short of strike action” since October 2021 over what they call ” a failure of the employer to address persistent verbal and physical assaults and violence against staff from pupils”.

Despite doing so, along with ongoing attempts by the union to work with school management, they allege that “incidents of violence, verbal abuse and intimidation against staff are continuing” at the school, which caters for over 1,000 pupils.
