STRIKING teachers have again taken industrial action and hundreds of children missed lessons – despite management at a South Tyneside school offering an “olive branch” to resolve a long-running education row.

Dozens of teachers picketed St Joseph’s Catholic Academy in Hebburn yesterday, in protest at plans to increase their working hours.

The fourth strike by members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NAS/UWT), again saw about 300 pupils forced to stay at home.
