The National Education Union (NEU) is a trade union in the United Kingdom for school teachers, further education lecturers, education support staff and teaching assistants. It was formed by the merger of the National Union of Teachers and the Association of Teachers and Lecturers in 2017. With 450,000 members, it is the largest education union in the UK and Europe and the fourth largest union in the UK.

Our members are teachers, supply teachers, heads, lecturers, managers and support staff in maintained and independent sector schools and colleges.

We want our members to feel informed and supported. On this website you will find copies of policies, news of campaigns and events. We regularly publish blog posts to update members.


We hold 10 General Members meetings a year to which all members are welcome.

For the foreseeable future, these meetings will be held on-line via Zoom. Our meetings help us to ensure that we are all fully informed about what is going on in workplaces and in the community and so that the District can identify and provide the necessary guidance and support for members.

Refreshments and a creche are provided for any General Members meetings which are held in person.

Dates for District meetings 2020/21

All meetings will start at 5pm and end by 6.30pm.

Many school groups are also using zoom to organise union meetings with their members to minimise contact while in school.
