    Covid-19 Letter to Parents and Carers

    As a group of primary schools within the Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust (YCST), we have considered the recent guidance sent out by NYCC which is summarised in the attached letter shared at the request of the Local Authority.

    In response, we would like to reassure you that each school within the Trust is continually risk assessing all school activities with the intention of keeping all children as safe as possible, whilst maximising their learning, but also not curtailing events unnecessarily, especially in the lead up to Christmas.

    As such, each school has taken into account their own building, premises, staffing and wider context when making initial decisions and then will be making adjustments as necessary in response to the number of Covid cases within that school community at any given time. In doing so, we will continue to seek advice from the local Public Health Team as appropriate.

    In light of this, contingency plans will be put in place which may need to be actioned, and each school will keep you informed with as much notice as possible if this happens.

    Your continued support is very much appreciated.
