All kitted out
This year, our Year 5 and 6 football team will be sporting their new colours with pride, after receiving our free Premier League Primary Stars kit.
Stocked full of items including 15 football shirts, shorts and socks, the Premier League kit was awarded to school following our successful application for the Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme, which is delivered by the Football Foundation. The team colours were chosen democratically by our School Council.
The scheme is part of the Premier League Primary Stars education programme which uses the appeal of Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children at primary schools across England and Wales to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
The new kit will be hugely beneficial for the new Year 5 and 6 football team who are about to start the new season. Good luck to the team.

Well done the Year 5 and 6 children who took part in the netball come and try fun festival tonight at Roundhay School.

Healthy Schools revalidation
We are proud to continue to be a happy and healthy school.
‘Congratulations on re-validating your Healthy Schools Status using the School Health Check tool, indicating that your school has self-evaluated whole school health. This demonstrates that your school is continuing to embed and improve provision against the four core areas of Healthy Schools.’
Health and Wellbeing service, Leeds City Council
Our re-validation was based on the four core areas of Healthy Schools –
- Personal Social Health Education (PSHE)
- Healthy Eating
- Physical Activity
- Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health
A visit will be arranged later this year to externally reassess this self-validation.
This status is valid for three years before re-validation is necessary (August 2019 – August 2022). During this period, a visit will be arranged to externally reassess your self-validation. Once the school has had a successful reassessment, you will then receive a Healthy Schools plaque and feedback report. In the meantime, we do recommend that you update the School Health Check on an annual basis.
Aldi Kit for Schools
Aldi’s Kit for Schools promotion is giving twenty primary schools the chance to win £20,000 to kick-start a health legacy for their school.
What’s more, every school who enters by completing their Aldi’s Kit for Schools poster will also receive an exclusive school sports kit! Help us collect stickers with every £30 you spend in store and fill up our school’s poster to give us a chance to win. Please bring your stickers to the school office before the promotion ends on the 3rd November. Thank you for your support.
Catering Leeds, our school meal provider, will be running a special themed menu on Thursday 3rd October. Please contact the office, as soon as possible, if your child would like a school meal on this day (no action needed if your child normally has a school meal on this day).
This week, Year 6 have been practising their inference skills. Challenge your child to explain what this means!
First we wrote down the thoughts and feelings of our class novel’s protagonist and questions we’d ask her if we could whilst listening to a chapter of the book.
Next, we got into Marianne’s shoes and answered questions as if we were her.
There were some carefully thought out questions and authentic answers – well done, Y6!
Bike to School Week
This week, it is Bike to School Week. Bike to School Week is a week long event designed to showcase the benefits of cycling to school.
Have you been inspired by the current UCI Road World Championships to get on your bike? Could you make biking to school one of your active methods of travelling to school this week?
To link with Bike to School week, our Year 1 class will be completing their Balance, Pedal, Go bike training this week.
If you are wanting to explore the area further by bike, this West Yorkshire Cycle map can help to find recommended routes.
Finally, have you visited the local Brownlee Centre? Take a look at some of their Let’s Ride sessions.
Tennis for Kids
Chapel Allerton Tennis and Squash Club are launching their Tennis For Kids courses at the club from this week (Thursdays and Saturdays).
These sessions are aimed at children between 4 and 11 years old. and both members and non-members are welcome to attend.
Tennis For Kids is a great way for kids to learn the basics of the game whilst having fun and interacting with other children at an affordable price.
In Y6, we enjoyed a great discussion about our goals for the year. Not only did we talk about what they were, but how to get there as well. It was fantastic to hear such enthusiasm and ambition echoed all around the classroom.
Push yourself. Never give up. Keep being awesome! You got this, Y6!
