A PICKET line was formed outside a council's headquarters this morning as teachers protested over working conditions.
Representatives from teaching union NASUWT joined staff from Penkhull's Mount Education Support Centre as a five-day strike got underway.
The demonstration was held in protest over Stoke-on-Trent City Council's decision to implement a new performance management policy in schools.
