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.
Molescroft Scouts have been offered assurances that Cllr Denis Healy will do all he can to make ERYC see sense. Cllr Healy was speaking following a visit to the Molescorft Scouts who are currently based at Longcroft School.
Both the Scouts and air cadets face an uncertain future as the council look to offload land for housing. Both groups both been given notice and told to vacate the site by the local authority.
