The "H" Factor

My aim has always been to create a happy school; a place where staff and children want to come to work and learn every day. People from Liverpool and Manchester have contacted us this week praising our website and the ethos it conveys.

"It comes across as a caring and co-operative school that puts the best interests of the children its core", one review commented. Another said...

Rising to the challenge 

Year 6 children showed 'true grit' and strength of character during the Key Stage 2 SATS week and I felt so proud of every single one of them. Faced with tests that would have tested children who have spoken English since birth, our children; the vast majority having English as an additional language, kept their focus, self belief and confidence.

Whilst walking...

Positive relationships 

It has been a joy to watch our staff buddies meet with their Year 6 children and show an interest in the progress each individual child has made this academic year. Thursday was a really special day when all our 1:1 Readers took time to coach and support the child they will read to in the SATS this week. The relationships which have been established are heart warming...

Creativity; thinking out of the box

It never ceases to amaze me how creative our teachers are at Harehills Primary school. Last week, children in Foundation 2 arrived in school to find a giant asleep on their carpet snoring loudly! They couldn't wait to tell me all about it and when I visited their classroom they were busy dressing him in school uniform because 'that's what he needs to wear...

"Come and join, share and enjoy"

It was fantastic to see so many families of the children in Early Years joining in the fun with a new programme that we will introduce at the beginning of next term called 'Family Funs'. Designed to encourage children to be more active, focussed and work outside of their comfort zones this is another exciting opportunity offered through our Sports Premium...

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...

Perseverance, resilience and determination

One of our key responsibilities is to equip our children with attributes that will prepare them for the challenges that life will throw at them. Our Harehills Curriculum allows us to focus on many of these and this half term we have been looking at what it means to persevere. This is perfect timing for the children in both Year 2 and Year 6 who are...

Having fun right across the curriculum

Last week was full of fun and creativity with children learning is so many different ways. Ashton 1 and 2 told the story of Noah's ark in their assembly using a mixture of song and Talk4Writing story telling. They explained the importance of being resilient in life. Mr Matthews and Mrs Marshall put together some exciting Maths challenges which all year...
