Working together as a team helps us to achieve much more and this week I have seen evidence of great team work wherever I have been. Year 2 showed true grit and character when they braved the unpredictable British weather on their trip to Scarborough. Even though it was windy, cold and wet they were determined to feel the sand between their toes and have the pictures to prove...

A dedicated group of skilled and energetic individuals it is their role to support but add challenge to the leadership of the school. They ensure that the Head teacher and the Strategic Leadership team are accountable for all aspects of school life. At this...
Young historians, inspired to learn
Summer term has begun with some fun inspirational starter lessons. Year 2 children enjoyed the fun of a Victorian seaside experience, including tasting cockles! As young historians they will be able to compare the seaside of the past with seaside visits for 21st century children when they go on their trip to Scarborough next week. Year 3 got a taste of life...

During the week our School Improvement...

Attitudes to Learning
Last week we proved that collaborating as a team of staff and children we can help one another to achieve.
Darfield 2 children reminded us of how important it is to be resilient and Year 6 children proved they could be during a long hard week of Mock SATs. Encouraged and supported by their staff buddies they persevered and remained focused throughout. A huge thank you to...

We have also started this half term really well. First week back Attendance levels rose to over 96%. If we can sustain this then we can achieve the highest Attendance levels the school has ever...
Understanding British democracy, Harehills Primary style!
Year 5 children began their new theme "Who stole....?" with a mock court case. What better way to inspire children to learn than to involve them as jurors in a case about the theft of jewellery and cash from a certain Mrs Peacock of Cluedo fame.
Our talented Year 5 teachers delighted the children by acting as various witnesses as well...
