Teachers at a primary school in Southall have pulled the plug on a two-day strike, after governors said they would wait until the result of an application for a new secondary school is known.
Khalsa VA Primary School teachers called off the first of three strikes on October 19, with a two-day strike on Wednesday (October 19) and Thursday (October 20) set to go ahead.
But after coming to an agreement with governors at the school, teachers have cancelled this two-day strike as well.
Ealing National Union of Teachers (NUT) said the school's governors had promised not to proceed with turning the Sikh school into an academy until the result of an application for a new secondary school is determined.
Governors have submitted an application for a new academy secondary in Southall to the Department for Education (DfE).
And it is believed governors will only press ahead with plans to transform Khalsa VA primary school into an academy if their secondary school bid is successful.
Divisions secretary of Ealing NUT Stefan Simms added that governors promised there would be a full consultation with staff and parents before any move to turn the school into an academy, following a decision from the DfE.
Mr Simms said: "We are pleased that a resolution has been agreed.
"Our members are pleased that an understanding has been reached and are able to avoid taking strike action - it was a last resort.
"Governors have given us their word and we are taking them to their word."
Khalsa VA Primary School and its governors have declined to comment.
All 15 teachers at the Norwood Green Road school who voted were in favour of striking , along with 17 out of 18 support staff, meaning hundreds of pupils would have missed lessons.
The vote to strike did not include the head teacher Parmjeet Kaur Sehmi.
What is an academy?
An academy is overseen by individual charitable bodies, called academy trusts, and are independent, state-funded schools.
They receive their funding from central government, and control their own admission process.
The school opened in 2009 and caters for pupils from nursery to Year 6, reaching full capacity in September last year.
Earlier this year (July 5), teachers rallied together in Haven Green during an NUT strike as thousands of children across the country missed lessons.
