Ofsted is inspecting Yarborough Academy tomorrow (6.3.18) and would like to hear your views. You can do this by completing an online pupil questionnaire at the following link: https://ofsted.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Pupil/10036491 If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell us your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Your views are really important to us, and will help inspectors understand your experience of school. The questionnaire will close at 11am on 06 March 2018, to give the inspector time to look at the results. The questionnaires work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 11, and on mobiles and tablets when you copy and paste the link into the browser. They do not ask for your name, so you will not be identified from the responses you make.

It is with regret that, Yarborough Academy will remain closed tomorrow (Friday 2nd March 2018). This was a difficult decision and has not been taken lightly. There are many factors that must be considered when making such a decision including, but not limited to: • Advice from local agencies (council, police etc.) • An adequate level of teaching and support staff that can safely get into (and home from) school. • The safety of the school car parks and site for staff, pupils and visitors. • Ultimately, being able to guarantee the safety of all our children and families both in the school grounds and around the surrounding areas of school. I do hope that you understand this decision and appreciate that whilst we really do not want to close the school, I have to be able to guarantee the safety of all of our staff, children and families. Many thanks for your continued support – we hope to see you all again on Monday! Kind regards, Mrs H Albery Headteacher
