Updates and Letters

As you may be aware, there is a story in the national press relating to aerated concrete blocks within schools. Our school buildings have all been checked for RAAC.


We are doing final checks this weekend and at the moment, we expect all SYMAT schools to open as expected next week.


The safety of all within our school is our utmost priority. If there are any changes, we will inform parents and carers straight away.

We are delighted to welcome Bishopthorpe Infants to our family of schools. Our schools have worked closely together for many years and look forward to the benefits an even closer partnership will bring to all of our schools within the trust.


Along with Archbishop of York’s CE Junior School, Bishopthorpe Infant School provides the primary educational provision for the village of Bishopthorpe, prior to the majority of pupils moving to Fulford School. The provision of an outstanding 3 to 18 journey for our pupils within SYMAT has always been central to our vision.

A fantastic achievement and very well deserved.
