My name is Hollie Melling. I am the Assistant Headteacher for Early Years (Acting).  It is my job to ensure the youngest children in school reach their potential and make good progress in the New Early Years Framework. I enjoy teaching in Ashton 2 and working with the amazing staff and children across the EYFS. I am also the PSHE and Pupil Voice lead at school.
In my spare time I enjoy spending lots of time with my family and friends. I also enjoy crocheting and dancing.

Bio

I am Jo Summerfield and I have the privilege of being Head teacher at Harehills Primary School.
It is my job to ensure that all children 'learn' and make as much progress as they can. I lead a very talented, experienced and energetic team at Harehills Primary to achieve this by making sure that staff and children 'love' what they are doing and 'laugh' a lot while they are doing it!

I am also a School Governor and I work in partnership with our Governors on all aspects of school life.
It is very rewarding being part of such a dedicated and enthusiastic group of governors who work tirelessly to make sure every child and their families have the best experience this school can offer.

I live in Roundhay with my husband and we have a son who is at a local high school and a daughter who is studying Medicine at Manchester University.

Spending quality time with my family and friends is really important to me. Travelling to new places is what I really enjoy and I love the freedom of sitting on a beach in the sunshine and breathing the sea air.
