Consultation on potential sites for the Roundhay Park Primary School Leeds

As you may be aware Leeds City Council, the Education Funding Agency and the Free School Trust agreed to undertake a joint consultation with all interested parties and stakeholders on 4 potential sites in the Roundhay area. The consultation has been extended to Friday 12 May and a further drop-in session has now been arranged at which council officers will be available to answer questions and discuss the consultation. Please find details of the drop in session below.

5.00pm – 8.00pm on Wednesday 10 May 2017 at:
Civic Hall (West Room)
Calverley Street
Leeds
LS1 1UR

Please use the Portland Crescent entrance to the building.

Further details on the consultation can be found here -http://www.leeds.gov.uk/residents/Pages/Currentschoolsconsultation.aspx

 

 

Consultation about sites for the Roundhay Park Free School

 The Roundhay area of Leeds has been identified as needing an additional 60 reception places (2 forms of entry) to ease ongoing pressure on primary school places in the area. There are now 4 sites which have the greatest potential to host the school; however there are issues with each of them. One of these sites is on a part of Roundhay Park so Leeds City Council (LCC) feels it is right that the whole city has a say on whether it should be further considered for this purpose.  A consultation is now taking place and will run until 28th April to enable a broad range of interested parties to express their views on the options as they are. LCC would encourage parents to share this consultation with those they may feel have an interest and would want to take part. The outcomes of this consultation will be passed on to the Education Funding Agency (EFA) for inclusion in their appraisal of which site(s) to consider progressing for the free school.

To take part in the survey please follow the following link www.leeds.gov.uk/roundhayfreeschool2017 . Further details about the sites can be found by vising the following LCC webpage: http://www.leeds.gov.uk/residents/Pages/Currentschoolsconsultation.aspx

 

 

Additional primary places to be offered in September 2017

Following discussions between our school and Leeds City Council, the Governing Body has agreed to admit an additional ‘bulge’ cohort of 30 children in September 2017. This means that the school will admit 90 children in its Reception cohort and these children will have a secure place at the school through to Year 6. There will be 3 classes of 30 children, led by a qualified teacher and support staff.

A letter has been sent to all parents which includes some frequently asked questions, but if you wish to discuss further, please feel free to approach the Headteacher on the playground, before or after school, or make contact via the school office.

Giving your child the wings to fly...

Welcome to Moor Allerton Hall

Our school has great children who bring a wide range of excellent experiences to share. You will find as you go round school that classes are full of friendly children who know how to learn together and look after each another. We believe working with families is essential, so we will keep parents & carers involved in their child’s learning.

OFSTED 

OFSTED inspectors visited for our regular inspection at the beginning of May. As for all schools, the inspection findings are confidential at the moment.  What I can tell you is the inspectors thought our children were delightful. The final report will not be published for another 3 weeks or so. We will let all parents/carers have access to a copy at that point. In the meantime, it is worth looking at the parent view questionnaire responses which were so positive about our school. Thank you everyone who took the time to fill in the online questionnaire. Follow the links below for more information:

What our children think...

"My son (in Year 1) rated his day at school on Monday as, "99 out of 100", he'd had such a great time: apparently only his birthday and Christmas Day would have scored more highly. Today was ranked an almost equally impressive "97". There have been no special events this week (Alien Day, World Book Day etc.), just regular school days. I wanted to feed back his glowing endorsement of MAH. As parents, we've been consistently impressed with the rate of his learning and development, but how fabulous that he's also enjoying himself so much along the way!" Year 1 Parent and Child

'As part of our School Council people tell us their ideas,' Asim.

'Our buddies at playtime are always around to help. If someone is upset, we try and play with them,' Ria.

'We have lots of trips. We went on an adventure to Malham Cove,' Aitzaz.

'Our topics are brilliant! In our 'Space' topic, we learnt about planets and astronauts,' Rayna.

'My favourite topic is the circus because one day our teachers dressed up as a clown,' Erin.

'We have our own amazing world wide library,' Krisha.

'I like the library because there are lots of books to choose from,' Amrit

Governors' Blog

         Blog by Pat Heron, Chair of Governors

 

Welcome to the new term at Moor Allerton Primary

Governor blog

Last year we began an annual update from governors on School Development and Improvement for parents and carers. At this point, half way through the school year, it is a good point to reflect on how far we have come. With this in mind, our new parent/carer update has gone out to keep families informed about our recent achievements and keep you up to date with the improvements we are currently working on. 

We have many exciting things to look forward to in the remaining half term of Spring. New higher challenge reading lessons are happening across school, the annual Arooj writing competition is under way, Classes 12&13 are heading off for our first year 5 outdoor adventure residential, exciting topic challenges and parent events are coming up and Friends of Moor Allerton Hall have a car boot sale and the fantastically popular Moor Allerton’s Got Talent will be held at the end of term. Make sure you get involved!
