We have now been notified of 2 polling days by the Council; the 23.5 polling day is an additional one to account for the European elections. We have to close the Danesgate campus to all pupils when it is used as a polling station for safeguarding reasons.
Lessons at New Earswick Folk Hall, Bell Farm Community Centre and Foxwood Community Centre will also be cancelled as these venues are being used as polling stations also. We will continue teaching pupils who are taught in the home or in their local library and any pupils who attend Ad Astra or Toolbox on a Thursday will also be unaffected and have their activities as normal.
There is one GCSE examination on 23.5.19 and this will have to run as directed by the exam board.
