The joy of performing

Being able to perform in front of hundreds of children and adults is a real test of character and the children exuded confidence and...

Simply having a wonderful Christmas time

We began the festive season on Tuesday 29th November decorating our Christmas tree and talking about the meaning of advent and the four candles representing Hope, Peace, Love and Joy. This was just the beginning of what has been another truly magical time at Harehills Primary School.

Children and staff have partied in style and our final day in school...

Adding a bit of sparkle and joy

On my advent calendar it says, "Bring your best self to work today. Be your own Sparkle" and during a difficult week with high staff and child absence I have seen so many people 'sparkling'. It is wonderful to have a strong, staff team who are able to add that bit of magic even when it's tough. 

I came into school on Friday morning to find very excited...

Elford 2 (Year 4) focused on Manners in their class assembly on Tuesday. I was so impressed with how confident they were in performing. Their assembly showed that the children have so many skills including acting, singing,...

Every November during Anti-Bullying week we focus on supporting children to be aware of how we can stop bullying, and if it does happen how they can get help. We have a zero-tolerance approach to bullying at Harehills Primary school.

Throughout the week classes have been engaged in a range of fun activities which have allowed for plenty of time to...

We will remember

I am finding it hard to choose a highlight from last week, but the main focus was on remembrance.

Sandhurst 2 class assembly all about Remembrance day was wonderful and it was great to see so many parents come to watch. On Friday, the Remembrance Day class circles poignant 2 minutes silence gave me goosebumps, especially when the sun came out briefly from behind the clouds....

Educational experiences

As we are approaching the final week of this half term, I have been reflecting on the wealth of educational experiences we offer at school. For families living on tight budgets, in the current economic climate it is very difficult to do anything beyond feeding and clothing their children. This makes it even more vital that we can offer all those life experiences,...

Celebrating Black History month

October is Black history month and last week Mrs Marshall led our family assemblies. She spoke to the children about famous black people that they already know including, Marcus Rashford, Meghan Markle and Oti Mobuse. The focus of the assembly was then shifted to make the children aware of lesser-known black people who have had significant impact on the world...
