Overall, 90.44 per cent of voting members said they supported strike action over pay, with turnout of 53.27 per cent.
It means a requirement for public sector unions to reach a 50 per cent turnout threshold and support from at least 40 per cent of eligible members has been met.
However, the turnout threshold was not met in a separate ballot of support staff members of the NEU. Turnout in that ballot was 46.46 per cent, with 84.13 per cent of those voting in favour.
Strike action planned in February and March
The union has said seven days of teacher strike action will take place in February and March, though “any individual school will only be affected by four of them”.
The first will be on will be on Wednesday February 1, affecting 23,400 schools in England and Wales, the union said.
Teacher members in sixth form colleges in England, who were successfully balloted and took a day of strike action last year, will also take action on these days.
Joint general secretaries Dr Mary Bousted and Kevin Courtney said it “continues to be the aspiration of the NEU and its membership that this dispute can be resolved without recourse to strike action”.
“We regret having to take strike action, and are willing to enter into negotiations at any time, any place, but this situation cannot go on.”
Education secretary Gillian Keegan said it was “deeply disappointing for children and parents that NEU teacher members have voted in favour of walking out”.
“Talks with union leaders are ongoing and any strike action from one union will have a damaging impact on pupils’ education and wellbeing, particularly following the disruption experienced over the past two years.
“We have already met the unions’ request for an additional £2 billion in school funding, which will take real terms spending on schools to its highest level in history.”
