A Parent Forum meeting is being held tomorrow (Wednesday, February 26) at Richmond School - the first since the resignation of its governing body.

The rescheduled meeting takes place in the school library at 6pm.

Concerned parents have been seeking answers as to why all 15 governors stood down after being issued with a warning notice by North Yorkshire County Council.

A letter to parents was posted on the school's website, signed jointly by headteacher Ian Robertson and Pete Dwyer, corporate director of Children and Young People's Services.

It said it wanted to "reassure all parents that no safeguarding or financial issues were involved in the discussions which then led to the resignation of the governing body".

However, the letter failed to explain the reason behind the resignations.
