SCHOOL staff are facing an uncertain future as their bosses look to make savings.

At least one teaching position at St Hild’s Church of England School, in King Oswy Drive, Hartlepool, is to be axed.

And more cuts could potentially be in the pipeline as its leaders carry out a “restructuring process” of teaching staff.

The move is to save the school money without compromising education to pupils.

Headteacher Colin Reid, confirmed the news.

But he said it was too early to go into detail about the plans.

He told the Mail: “I can confirm that the school has started a process to restructure the teaching staff.

“Given that the process is on-going, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”

The announcement at St Hild’s Church of England School follows plans at High Tunstall College of Science, in the town’s Elwick Road, to make £150,000 of savings by cutting non-teaching staff numbers.

The cuts were announced in a bid to balance the books in the year 2015-2016 as the budget for the coming year had already been set.

It included positions such as one-to-one staff, office workers at the school and caretakers.
