Teachers set to strike at pupils' behaviour

Darwen Vale High School

Teachers are due to stay away from a school in Lancashire on Thursday - because they say the pupils' behaviour is too bad.

Staff at Darwen Vale High School say they need more help to deal with the kids which they say are out of control.

If the protest goes ahead, it means there'll be no lessons for the 1,150 pupils at the Blackburn school.

The head teacher sent a letter home to tell parents that the school was sorting the problem out.
