Teachers have called off strike action threatened for the rest of term after announcing a breakthrough in talks with management.
Members of the National Association of Schoolmasters Union of Women Teachers at Barr Beacon Language College in Aldridge, Walsall, were due to walk out today in the latest one-day strike.
But union chiefs told a meeting with parents that the action had now been suspended for 21 days.
Members of the NASUWT, who make up the vast majority of staff at Barr Beacon, are in dispute over what they claim are management failings and a breakdown in discipline among pupils. They are also angry about the suspension of their school ' s union representative.
One- day strikes have already forced the closure of the school on four occasions since January.
Jerry Bartlett, NASUWT deputy general secretary, told a meeting in Great Barr, on Tuesday night that action had been suspended following talks with governors and new head teacher Ed Gabbani.
Mr Bartlett said management had agreed to implement a plan of action and an acknowledgement that serious failings by previous management had led to a deterioration of standards.
But furious parents accused the union of jeopardising their children's education. The union was also accused of not following proper grievance procedures and that the main objective was to secure the reinstatement of union representative Tony Parker, who was suspended for alleged gross misconduct.
