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'

Forty seven KS2 children and seven staff join the UK's largest children's choir when they took part in Young Voices 2016 at Sheffield Arena on Friday 22nd January.
