Community champions

What a wonderful sight it was to see classes of children in all the streets close to our school bathed in sunshine picking up litter. Even more rewarding was the smile on their faces and the sense of enjoyment because they were doing something for others and making a difference to the community they live in. As one of six Zone champions across Harehills we are keen to lead...

Time to explore 'Moving on up'

In March our Year 6 children will find out which high school they will transfer to in September. An effective transition is so important at any stage of a child's learning journey but especially when the next step involves a change in school.

Their creative ideas will be used along with those from children in other CHESS cluster schools to contribute to a huge sculpture to be sited in the grounds of the...

From Romans, tornadoes and number sentences to finding out about Outer Space, every class was inspired and engaged. In assembly we took time to think about the many things we are proud about at Harehills Primary...
