Staff at a Southampton school are set to strike amid a lack of action to manage the behaviour of students.

The National Education Union has confirmed today that staff at Oasis Academy in Lord's Hill will take industrial action on June 25 and July 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11. 

The announcement comes after a variety of issues including a failure by the employer to manage student behaviour and keep staff safe, the union says. 

A picket will be held from 7.30 to 9.30am on Tuesday, June 25 at the school on Romsey Road.

Nick Childs, Senior Regional Officer said: “Whilst progress has been made in negotiations this has been insufficient to assure our members that it is safe for them to be in school and that behaviour management will improve rapidly enough.

"There are also several issues outstanding in relation to excessive workload in the school.

"There remains a real issue of lack of trust in Oasis management amongst members and this is making reaching an agreement difficult."

Members at the Oasis Academy, Sheppey, Kent also struck over the same issue in November.
