Coronavirus and schools closure information for parents / carers
Following the Government’s announcement, East Riding of Yorkshire Council would like to reiterate that schools, colleges and childcare providers will be closed for the vast majority of children until further notice.
Many parents working in critical sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home. Every child who can be safely cared for at home, should be.
The Department for Education is asking schools, colleges, nurseries, childminders and other registered childcare settings to offer provision, where they can, for children of critical workers and vulnerable children. You may have already been contacted by your child’s school. If this is not the case please look at their website.
This is an offer to parents and carers who are critical workers or have vulnerable children. There is no requirement for parents and carers to send children to school if you do not need or wish to do so.

Together, we shine as one.
Cowick Primary School is a small school situated in the rural East Riding village of East Cowick, near Snaith.
Our school motto is ‘Together, we shine as one.’
Embedded in our school ethos are the Christian Values of hope, love and peace.
Our school is a warm, nurturing place for all where children can feel safe, cared for and valued; we are one big family. We treat every child as the amazing individual they are. Our intention is to create learners for life - children who are enthused with a love for learning. We strive to provide inspiring, broad, balanced and creative yet challenging learning experiences in school that in turn will build lasting memories, inner confidence and resilience. Through these experiences, our children will develop the ability to make a positive contribution to our society.
We believe that by working together in strong partnership with our community of children, staff, governors, parents and our local community, we can achieve the goals and aspirations we set ourselves whilst creating memorable moments for all.
'A major strength of the school is its relationships with parents, who are very happy with the school, saying, ‘I could not wish for more’. ’ (Ofsted, 2020)
I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school. Please do pay us a visit – we would be most happy and proud to show you what we have on offer here at Cowick. Appointments can be made through Mrs Booth or Mrs Reed in the office on 01405 860417.
