Principals and senior school staff will meet this week to consider industrial action over the WA Government's cuts to education.

They will discuss concerns about plans to cut 500 jobs, as well as behaviour and literacy programs.

President of the State School Teachers Union Anne Gisborne says there is also wide concern about the proposed new funding model for 2015.

She says industrial action will be discussed at meetings on Wednesday and Thursday.

"I think this is something we will have to consider quite seriously," she said.

"You know there's some significant changes and challenges that are confronting our members, in terms of funding cuts, job security, future prospects about changes in their working conditions."

Ms Gisborne says there could be strikes.

"You know we've got changes that are occurring immediately," she said.

"We've got some adjustments and reductions that are happening in 2014 and then we've got further reductions in 2015."

"We don't even have the specific information for 2015 that will enable us to have a clear view of what those further reductions might look like."
