Dr Graham Gault, director of school leaders' union NAHT Northern Ireland, has today written an open letter to the Permanent Secretary at the Department for Education (DE), calling for a 'fair pay settlement' to be 'pursued with urgency'.
The letter comes as teachers' union NASUWT announce strikes to begin in May, which NAHT says 'will seriously curtail activities and development across our schools'.
