SCHOOLS face closing their doors within days as teachers launch a string of strikes.

The decision on whether they will be open or not is left with head teachers in England, local councils in Scotland, and head teachers in consultation with local authorities in Wales.

Parents and guardians are entitled to time off if normal arrangements are broken, but it would be up to the employer if they would pay for this time off.

In February and March strikes will take place across SEVEN days.
