Teachers Assurance will deliver a free presentation on the recent Teachers’ Pension Reforms at Rack House Primary School, Northern Moor on Wednesday 13 January at 3.50pm.

Plans to turn Parrs Wood High School into an academy are being opposed by all the education unions in Manchester. The decision is being made for all the wrong reasons – doing it to avoid possibly being forced to academise under an academy chain at some point in the future is not the way education in our city should be organised.
An online petition has been set up to oppose the change; please add your name to it:
