Head Teacher’s Welcome

Welcome to our School Website.

Our aim is that you can easily find the information that you are looking for, whilst being able to celebrate what a vibrant, dynamic, busy and amazing place it is.

A Church School

Allerton CE Primary is a Church of England Voluntary Controlled school. We welcome children from all faiths and backgrounds and those of none. We are privileged to have a diverse school community, with representatives from many cultures. This leads to a rich, colourful and exciting community. In 2018-19 we have just over 630 children on roll, with over 40 languages spoken. This includes a large thriving Nursery.

Allerton Church of England Primary is a hard working, dynamic, creative and friendly school. We have a Multi-Use Games Area, separate purpose built KS2 and Year 6 classroom blocks. Our outdoor areas are huge, with many opportunities for learning….fort, fire pit, amphitheatre, pizza oven, quiet garden and much more. Our school grounds are really extensive and we love to garden, grow things and create outdoor sculptures and nature areas. This has been reinforced by our Forest School Status.
In September 2016, we opened our own purpose built Arts space, Café/Cooking room and Nurture space. This is currently part of  our Out of School Club (OOSC) provision.

This year, 2018-19, sees the completion of our expansion to 3FE. We have worked closely with Leeds City Council, to design and plan a new Y4-Y6 classroom block, which will further enhance what we can offer as a school. So, please forgive the blue hoardings and temporary classroom on the playground…..this is due to be completed November 2019.

We have also made a significant investment of £110 000 to create a wonderful new EYFS outdoor area, which was completed Easter 2019.

Our Arts Mark Gold Status and Arts partnerships, enable us to provide quality experiences and provision for our pupils. Our Early Years provision extends from our 2 year old setting up to Reception. Come and see what is on offer, as the children are happy and settled and we would love to welcome you too. Our entrance is shared with the Alwoodley Children’s Centre, which is sited within the same building. Co-location has enabled really strong partnership working.

A Passion for Learning

We are passionate about learning and aim for every child to have a happy and active primary education in an environment that is caring and supportive. We provide a stimulating and structured environment in which all children are encouraged to reach their full potential. We treat all our pupils individually, developing their sense of worth and confidence and encourage unique talents to flourish in every child.

We want our children to really love learning. We want our children to be passionate about what they do. We want to work in partnership with you, our parents, as this is key to success.

Pride

I am proud to be Head teacher of this Church school, to share our school life and work with you.
