The school says it does "its utmost to ensure

Teachers in Birmingham are to begin industrial action on Friday after governors overturned a decision to expel a boy who allegedly threatened other children with a knife.

Teaching union NASUWT said teachers at Saltley School would boycott meetings and refuse to do extra work.

However, a spokeswoman said staff would continue to teach classes.

Police attended an incident involving a pupil and knife on 22 May but officers chose to take no further action.

A teenager was permanently excluded but the decision was overturned by governors.

Saltley School headteacher Balwant Bains has said he has "total confidence in the safety of staff and pupils".
