This blog is about Ian Fleming (me) and my experiences, work and views as someone who is a Trade Unionist and Labour Party Activist in North Northumberland. I will attempt to comment on items of political, media or cultural significance and I write in a personal capacity.
Following 3 days of industrial action ATL, NASUWT and NUT are organising a Community Demonstration to Save Kenton School turning into an Academy. The Governing Body of Kenton School have consulted of their intention to convert into an Academy and the staff, parents and local community are opposed to it. The Governors are meeting at the school next Tuesday, 4 October 2011 to make the decision. The demonstration will start at 4pm, so bring your banners and help support the trade unions, parents and local people stop their school changing to an Academy.
