As your readers will be aware, children who attend special schools are one of the most vulnerable groups in society.

While I accept that the strikers have a good case for parity with professional colleagues, I feel it is wrong that in this instance they have made vulnerable children suffer in pursuit of financial gratification.

May I conversely congratulate the teaching assistants at my own son's special school - Samuel Pepys School in St Neots - who on this occasion put the interests of vulnerable children and their families above their own self-interest by working normally.
