Mid-Dale Excellence in Education

Mid-Dale Excellence in Education
 
Welcome to the BAWB Federation website: Bainbridge C of E, Askrigg VC, and West Burton C of E Primary (and nursery) schools.
 
Our schools are located in the picturesque villages of Bainbridge, Askrigg, and West Burton in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  Ours schools are happy places with high aspirations for all our children and we work actively with our parents and community to ensure that we provide the best educational experiences for our children. At Bainbridge and West Burton our Christian ethos underpins the life of the schools and is the basis of our excellent relationships with our parents, local communities and churches. We are proud to have been judged as ‘outstanding’ in recent SIAMS inspections in both schools.
 
We work very closely as an effective federation and, at Bainbridge and Askrigg, we have combined our resources to teach all EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) and KS1 children at Bainbridge and all KS2 children at Askrigg.
 
Our website contains a wide range of information and is updated on a regular basis. We hope you enjoy visiting our website and find it useful, whether you are visiting for the first time or are a regular user. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further information.

A Letter to Parents (Updated 10/05/18)

 

Dear Parents and Stakeholders,

We would like to thank everyone who responded to the consultation on Option 3A which we have collated and considered.At the governing board meeting held last night, which was attended by Local Authority and Diocese representatives, Option 3A was approved with implementation recommended from September 2018. The Governors felt unanimously that this option provided the best possible opportunities for the children of our three schools.

The caveat to the decision is that Governors have received a request from Councillor Blackie and other respondents for NYCC officers and Governors to explore the feasibility of West Burton School leaving the federation. The defederation of West Burton runs against all the previous advice the governing board have received, and before a decision about defederation can be made the implications of defederation on all 3 schools needs to be explored. A group of Governors will immediately begin to carefully assess the long term educational and financial impacts of defederation on all three schools. They will work with the Local Authority and others to explore the implications of defederation on mid-dale education and aim to complete this work for presentation at the Governing Board meeting on 19th June. Information about the research will then be communicated to stakeholders for consideration before a decision is made; this is scheduled to be at the Governing Board on 11th July. The implementation date of Option 3A may therefore be reviewed in light of the decisions that are reached.

We thank you for your patience and hope that you will support the Governing Body in trying to find the best, sustainable solution for all three schools.

With regards

BAWB Federation Governing Board
