Please read a letter to all Hope Learning Trust staff on behalf of the York Schools and Academies Board (YSAB) following the announcement on May 10, 2020 by the government of its conditional plan of a phased reopening of schools. Click here to read the full letter.
Following the recent Ofqual publication on Friday 3 April 2020, which provided guidance to schools on how grades will be awarded this summer, we wanted to inform you about what your school will be doing to provide students with grades. The details of the Trust response are set out here or you can watch this useful video from Ofqual:
The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. In response to the Prime Minister’s address to the Nation, we must ask that parents and carers continue to only access the emergency child care cover at the school if you absolutely have to and if there is no one else in your household, who is not a key worker, who can safely look after your child.
It is essential that we minimise the number of people accessing this emergency cover so that we can adhere to strict social distancing requirements, for the health and safety and wellbeing of the children and our staff.
Please read a letter to parents/carers, dated 20 March 2020, from our Chief Executive Officer, Mr Brian Crosby.
Please visit your child’s school website for details about how to access the emergency cover. Please inform the school if your requirements change and you no longer need cover for the days you have booked.
Our school websites can be found here:
‘Key workers’ are defined as those whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response or those who work in one of the critical sectors listed below:
Official guidance for educational settings and procedures to follow if you or your child are unwell, is here: COVID-19: guidance for education settings
Find out information and guidance on self-isolation here: Stay at home: guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection
