Headteacher Announcement📢

What a wonderful first term it has been! Pupils, parents, carers and staff have worked hard to make things ‘business as usual’. Everyone has shown their determination and resilience through what has been an incredibly challenging time for us all. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support.  

Highlights from the autumn term for me include: Everyone being able to mix again. Lunch in the dinner hall on the first day was fabulous. This had been missed so much by everyone. Assemblies back in the hall and presenting certificates. My first hug from a child, who ran up to me and wouldn’t let go. Children making fantastic memories through trips, such as to the Coal Mine, Gipton woods and Roundhay Park and pupil voice that showed how far our children have come in their learning in lots of different areas despite the pandemic challenges 

Next term, we will be sharing our ‘Your Voice Survey’ actions and what we will be doing to address these.

If you need to contact us over the break to let us know about a positive case before we return, please call and leave a voicemail on 0113 240 2526 or email:

We wish you a safe and peaceful time with your families during the break and look forward to seeing you back in on Wednesday January 5th 2022.
