Look what you can achieve if you collaborate

We always focus on the power of collaboration during the first half term of the school year. This year I shared an example of how different people in school have collaborated on a project and what a success this was.

The aim was to create a virtual tour of our school which shows what a happy, welcoming place it is and the result was fantastic. In...

Their leavers performance, "Robin and the Harehills Hoodies" was fantastic . 🙌 Every child had been given the opportunity to showcase their personality and their talents. We laughed, we cried and we clapped with appreciation. If the job of a...

Ready for the next step

It was wonderful on transition day last week to visit classrooms and see happy, smiling faces. Every class spent a day with their new teacher in their new classroom and had a taster of what it will be like in their new year group, as well as meeting the staff who will be working with them. I couldn't help but notice how ready for this next step they all are.

Our staff...
