HERE is a list of schools closed in Worcestershire today because of strike action.

Schools across Worcestershire are either fully or partially closed today because of industrial action, including schools in Worcester, Droitwich, Evesham and Kidderminster. We will keep you updated as and when new schools are added to the list. 

Members of the National Education Union (NEU) in England are striking - the fifth day of national strike action this year.

In both England and Northern Ireland, teachers do not have to say in advance if they are striking, and there are no rules about when parents must be told about closures.

Head teachers decide whether to shut schools. Some parents may only be told about a closure on the morning itself, once staff numbers are known.
