Teachers of a Halifax school are threatening to strike today if a 13-year-old girl expelled for alleged violence is allowed to return to class, the Daily Mail reports (p5).

The girl was thrown out of The Ridings School after being accused of pushing a teacher and being violent towards another pupil. But the head teacher's decision, supported by school governors, was overturned by an appeals committee.

Meanwhile, governors and education officials are meeting today in a bid to avert strike action by teachers at Manton Junior School in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Staff voted for strike action after governors refused to expel a 10-year-old boy, who they claim is a threat to their safety and that of pupils.

The policy of the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers is that pupils should be expelled for attacks on its members.
