Today's teacher strike is set to affect schools across Dartford and Gravesham.
The walkout has been organised by the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the National Association of Schoolmasters’ Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) in a dispute with the government over pay, pensions and working conditions.
Some schools will be shut completely while others will be partially open, depending on how many union members join the picket lines.
In total 17 schools across Dartford and Gravesham have announced they will be partially or fully closed.
Kent County Council stressed that this is not a definitive list and parents should check with schools today to see if they are open.
The closed schools are:
Anthony Roper Primary School
Chantry Community Academy
Dartford Grammar School for Girls
Hartley Primary Academy
Horton Kirby CofE School
Langafel CEP School
Maypole Primary School
Northfleet Technology College
Our Lady of Hartley Catholic Primary School
