Teaching union chiefs have failed to secure support for strike action after not enough staff turned out to vote. 

Nine out of 10 members of the NASUWT in England and Wales voted for strikes over pay. 

However, the turnout was 42 per cent, below the 50 per cent legal threshold, the teachers’ union announced.

Various teachers’ union chiefs had threatened to bring chaos to schools after saying “no concrete progress” was made during last-ditch talks with Gillian Keegan, the Education Secretary, last week.
