The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) will consider taking industrial action to challenge the government’s plans to turn all schools into academies

Mary Bousted, general secretary of the moderate ATL teaching union, told delegates the "fight" against all-out academisation can be won.

She spoke just hours before her union unanimously carried an emergency motion to work with other unions "to defend the public service ethos of the profession" and oppose forced academisation.  

During the Easter break, the National Union of Teachers (NUT) voted to ballot for strike action against academisation plans - which could take place in the summer term.
