Whinging Teachers

Oh dear the NUT are banging on about their ‘poor’ pay again. They are looking at strike action again as their proposed pay rise is to be about 2%. Oh dear, us poor support staff are to get the same rise and does anyone care? Nope! The poor dears aren’t underpaid anyway. The thing they […]
