Nearly all East Riding parents of children moving to secondary school this year have got places for them at their preferred school.
Letters to parents telling them the outcome of their applications for secondary places in September are being sent out today, Thursday, 1 March. All local authorities in England have to send the letters out on the same date.
Local MP Graham Stuart returned to the classroom as he took part in the “Back to School” campaign at Beverley High School.
Mr Stuart saw presentations from pupils about education around the world, before speaking to them about what the Government is doing to help disadvantaged children across the globe receive a school education.
East Riding Councillor, Denis Healy, has launched a petition after figures reveal the devastating impact that the Government’s £3bn cuts to education funding will have on East Riding schools, including Longcroft School and Beverley High School.
Schools in the East Riding are bracing themselves for budget reductions of £14.9m in real terms by 2019, meaning an 8% cut in pupil funding, equivalent to 400 teachers’ jobs.
Since Beverley’s East Riding Theatre opened its doors in December 2014 it has consistently delivered high quality drama, music and entertainment to the people of HU17 and beyond.
The ERT’s inaugural sell-out production and first Christmas show was “A Christmas Carol” in 2014 (adapted for the stage by international film and television actor and the Theatre’s Creative Director and co-founder Vincent Regan)
