We have had an excellent start to the new year, with lots of exciting work going on.
Reception started the week with a Dinosaur Planetarium. The children came out buzzing about their experience, talking about dinosaurs being extinct and meteorites. I am looking forward to seeing the work that they produce from this!
Could things get anymore exciting after day 1? Judge for yourself! You can see more photos at http://allertonceprimary.com/events-gallery/robinwood-2018-day-2/
Our Year 6 have had an amazing first day at Robinwood, you can see some photos of the activities they have been involved in and the beautiful location at http://allertonceprimary.com/robinwood-day-1/
School will be open at 10am for children. This is to ensure staff can get to work safely and that we can make the site safe.
Please ensure they are wrapped up warmly and have suitable footwear. Paths are very icy and the main gate is currently frozen shut.
All children to go carefully to the hall at 10am.
Please do not arrive earlier. Travel safely.
Due to worsening conditions, and an unsafe school site, we have made the unprecedented decision to close school today.
We will continue to monitor the forecast for Friday and keep parents updated via text & email.
We will rearrange our own World Book Day next week. Date to be arranged.
I apologise for any inconvenience the decision has caused and thank you for your support in the matter.
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.
Drop-in session dates and times:
Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm
Monday 3 July 8.30am-9.30am
Thursday 13 July 2.45pm-4pm
To find out more about the proposal and how you can have your say, please pick up a copy of the consultation document from the school office, download it from here or visit the following websites from June 2017
We are really proud of all the sports competitions that we take part in. I love them to win but am delighted that they take part and do their absolute best.
Last week, I was proud of our netballers who had a great win against Highfield Primary School. Well done Y5/6!
This afternoon our ACE Cafe opened with an Italian themed meal. The food was prepared by Mrs Walker with help from Mrs Horsley and served to a crowd of ravenous pupils who were hungry after a day of brain work. Food was provided by TRJFP Fuel For School.
I love it when pupils visit me, to share their successes.
Reception pupils get very excited about writing new words. This Reception visitor is also a fantastic reader, so was able to read my Headteachers Award, that he received. Well done!
