MP Graham Stuart has held a virtual meeting with Longcroft School and Sixth Form College’s Head of School, Irie Grant, and Executive Headteacher, Jonathan Britton, to find out how the school is coping with remote learning.
MP for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart, has sung the praises of schools across his constituency – offering his thanks to teachers, teaching assistants, governors, and parents and pupils themselves for their resilience and flexibility during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Beverley Braves have officially opened their new facility which is located on Thurlow Avenue. For the past six years, the club has been working on the project that finally sees the club get their own home.
To celebrate they opened their doors to the public while also inviting the people and local councillors who have helped them make this dream a reality.
St Mary’s Ward Councillor Denis Healy has met with the Acting Head of Longcroft School, Andy Baker, together with Longcroft pupils and teachers, following last week’s publication of the national progress scores, which revealed that Longcroft had the lowest score in the East Riding for pupil progress and below the national average.
Cllr Healy had said that parents needed to “have faith” that the school could turn round its performance. That prompted Mr Baker to contact Cllr Healy with an invitation to visit the school, to see for himself the work that is going on to get Longcroft back on track.
Before Christmas, students at Longcroft School and Sixth Form College lent their support to the East Riding Food Bank.
A large number of items were generously donated by students, families and members of staff, as part of a drive to raise awareness of this important local charity, which supports many people in Beverley and the surrounding area.
