Children and Young People’s Plan

Posted on Thursday 03 March 2016 by Mrs Taylor

The ambition of Leeds City Council is for Leeds to be a child-friendly city.  A child-friendly version of the city’s Children and Young People’s Plan has recently been launched; it was designed in consultation with pupils from primary and secondary schools across Leeds.  As well as being a fun activity sheet, it is also a good way to share the city-wide vision directly with children and to raise their awareness of what Leeds City Council are doing to make Leeds the best city for children to live and grow up in.

The plan was recently reviewed by our School Council.

If you would like a printed copy of the plan, please ask at the office.


Children and young people are the future of our city, which is why we put them at the very heart of the growth strategy.  We want Leeds to be a compassionate city with a strong economy, and it is really important that all our children and young people are supported to achieve their full potentials.  The city-wide partnership approach in promoting and achieving the aims of the Leeds Children and Young People’s Plan is key to this.

Today’s menu

Posted on Thursday 03 March 2016 by Mrs Taylor

Have you seen our new menu board on display in the dining room?  This is updated daily to show the school dinner menu including the main course, vegetarian main and jacket potato option.  If your child has their school dinner in the main hall they are encouraged to have a look at the board at the start of the day, playtime or at lunchtime.

You’re also welcome to have a look with your child/children.

The full weekly menu is still available, displayed on the dining room window and in our school meals section.

The Summer term menu has also been published with details of any new dishes.  How to encourage others to try new dishes was recently discussed by our School Council.  Suggestions included:

  • Tell your friends if you have tried one of the new meals.
  • Have a taster of a new meal.

In response to this, children can request a small taster of a new meal alongside their lunch.  New dishes will be highlighted on the menu board.


I work co-operatively to help a group.

Posted on Wednesday 02 March 2016 by Mrs Taylor

As part of our SEAL learning, Year 2 had some great suggestions for how to work co-operatively to help a group so we put it to the test.


There was some great teamwork, where all the group were included, listening and using motivation to solve the group challenge.

This afternoon, we’ve been stretching and relaxing in a yoga class. We’ve made animal and plant poses from all around the world. We’ve talked about our bodies and what they need, different types of animals and their habitats, pollution and even deforestation.



Book Fair

Posted on Monday 29 February 2016 by Mr Wilks

We’ve just visited the book fair. We had a story read to us about a messy monster called Jumblebum who lives in the bedrooms of untidy children. We’ve all chosen our books and are now back in class reading them.


Library Books

Posted on Friday 26 February 2016 by Mr Wilks

Sorry that we haven’t been able to change the library books. The library is currently being improved and is out of bounds until after next week. Please can you bring in your child’s current library book and we’ll get new ones as soon as possible.

Our next SEAL theme – Getting on

Posted on Sunday 21 February 2016 by Mrs Taylor

For this half term, our SEAL theme Getting On covers four main aspects:

  • developing the social skills of friendship
  • working well together in a group
  • managing anger
  • resolving conflict

A key resource for children to refer to during this theme, and at other times, is Peaceful Problem Solving.  This is a useful resource to encourage children to sort out their own problems.  You may wish to talk through this with your child(ren).



When group work takes place in school, some questions for children to consider are:

  • Did everyone take turns?
  • Did everyone listen to what other people thought?
  • Did each person have chance to tell the group what they thought?
  • If people had different ideas could the group reach a compromise?

The key areas of learning throughout this theme are empathy, managing feelings and social skills.

We start our weekly SEAL statements with a focus on manners, I don’t interrupt (with my mouth or with my hand).
