Proposal to increase primary school places within the Alwoodley area

Leeds City Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Allerton Church of England Primary School from a capacity of 420 to 630 pupils by permanently increasing the admission limit in reception from 60 to 90 pupils from September 2018. The consultation period commences on Monday 26 June 2017 and closes on Friday 21 July 2017 at 4pm. During this time we will be having some drop-in sessions at the school for parents, carers and residents to learn more about the proposal and ask any questions they may have. The format of the drop-in sessions is informal, with officers from the Sufficiency and Participation (school place planning), Built Environment and Highways teams in attendance to discuss any queries you may have about the proposals. You may attend any of the drop-in sessions between the start and finish times.

Meetings details:

Drop-in session dates and times:

Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm

Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am

Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Year 6 helped with the baking for their coffee morning. We also had donations from other very generous people and of course all of you who came to support our event or bought cakes in the playground afterwards.

I AM PROUD TO TELL YOU THAT OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY HAS RAISED IN EXCESS OF £330!

Well done and thank you.

Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to a new school year. One of the first things that we did was to taste some of the delicious fruit that has appeared in the Orchard over the Summer –
prize winning apples for both flavour and appearance!

The Forbidden Corner

The Forbidden Corner

On Wednesday 12th July, Miss Judge and Miss Kelly took us to Forbidden Corner as an end of year trip. It was fun and exciting however a bit scary at times. I really enjoyed it and I’m sure everyone else in year 6 did too.

When we got close to arriving, we stopped off to get an ice-cream and I think the most popular one was definitely the chocolate fudge. After we had eaten, we jumped back onto the coach and resumed our journey to Forbidden Corner. Finally we arrived.

When we got there, we were split up into our groups, I was in Miss Whiteley’s group with my best friends : Charlotte and Eileen. Then, we got a sheet with the letters Forbidden Corner with circles underneath each letter. What we had to do was explore Forbidden Corner and while we were going along, look for brass circles and they had one of the letters in them. Then we had to get a pencil (or a coin – which is what we used) and scratch the brass circle onto the sheet. It was very exciting! Personally, my favourite part was the maze because it was very puzzling, however very fun.

Overall, I really enjoyed this trip and I would like to say thank you to Miss Judge and Miss Kelly for organizing this trip and for the ice – cream too!
