Excellent all round. Perfect unobtrusive service. Lovely chicken kebab and lamb shanks. You probably won’t need a starter unless you are Adam Moran. Really nice ice cream to follow and a bottle of Merlot for £22. We will be going again next time we are in town.

We spotted this restaurant as we were staying nearby. Very warm welcome and we were offered a lovely table by the window. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and guided us through starters and mains. The food was delicious and very good portions. Lovely bottle of wine to wash it all down with. A superb experience and we would definitely return. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm you are 100% definitely coming. Please state name and school

*This year there have been twice as many motions submitted as usual. This is good for democracy. However many will not get enough NEU District votes get on to the conference agenda. We need to be strategic in supporting motions that might not make it, even though we did not submit them. Some motions are also highly likely to get on the agenda.
Therefore I am proposing that we keep 5 of the 6 Ealing submitted; SATs (Motion 9), SEND (Motion 6), Workplace representatives (motion 83), Sexism & online misogyny (motion 72), Palestine (motion 107). And replace Working Conditions in Adverse Heat (motion 10) with Educating for Peace (motion 110). Here are all the submitted Conference Motions –> Motions for Priority Voting 2024
Any alternative set of motions to be prioritise must be with me before Thursday 1st Feb
Last Friday, the Tories announced that they had “miscalculated” the funding plans for schools. In July they promised a 2.7% rise in school funding between 2023-2024 and 2024-2025. This was crucial to their claim that the 6.5% pay award for teachers was funded. The rise is now only 1.9% not 2.7%. This means a huge £370 million cut to schools funding which equates to £50 less funding per pupil and roughly a teachers’ or more likely a support staff job in every school. This is appalling and unacceptable. We and our pupils need more staff not less in our classrooms. The basis on which NEU members in the internal ballot before the summer voted to accept the 6.5% on the basis of the claimed funding rise is no longer valid. We have a live strike mandate. Members before the summer voted overwhelmingly to continue national strikes if we did not get an acceptable offer. That mandate should be acted upon immediately to fight this new government betrayal of educators and children and their families. Support Staff must be re-balloted as soon as possible.
