A PLANNED strike at an East End school has been called off at the eleventh hour.

Members of the National Union of Teachers at St Paul's Way Community School who were preparing to walk out tomorrow say the strike is no longer going ahead following talks with the school management.

Teachers at the school in Bow, where Adrian Swain was recently sacked for wearing trainers, were planning to strike after the announcement that the majority of staff would have to reapply for their jobs and 20 of them could face redundancies.

Headteacher Grahame Price said the school needed a "staffing and curriculum restructure" because of a cut in government funding due to falling student numbers.

But today the NUT confirmed bosses have agreed to delay the redundancies until next term.
