At Harehills Primary School we are very proud of the cultural and lingual diversity that our children have. Being bi-lingual or multi-lingual is a valuable skill and will provide our children with a wide range of opportunities in adult life. There is a World Language display outside the office to celebrate the current Language of the Half Term.
