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

Dear Parents, Carers and Stakeholders,Dear Parents, Carers and Stakeholders,As you are very aware a tremendous amount of time and labour has been invested in finding the most appropriatemodel to deliver the best possible education for our children. This is pitched against a need for educational andfinancial sustainability. Myself and Mrs Harrison have worked closely with the Governing Board, the Local authorityand we have taken into account your views via the ‘Drop-ins’ and written feedback. Ultimately we have been lookingfor an option that delivers the best possible education for our pupils now and in the future.

As stated in our letter dated 22nd March 2018 the option provisionally recommended by the governors (“Option 7”)was an option for internal reorganisation of the schools. Option 7 did not have sufficient community support to proceed.Some people who responded were in favour of this option, but many had very strong reservations about it. There werethree other options for internal reorganisation of the schools which were projected to deliver a budget surplus by2020/21. One of these (“Option 3”) also attracted both some support and equally strong opposition. The other two did nothave any significant support.

Attached Below  is the model that we have agreed is the most viable. We have called it 3A as it is a variation similar to theoriginal Option 3:
