Proposal to Increase Primary School Places within the Alwoodley area

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:

Building a boat!

Ruby and Sara went on the first trip with our boat!

The children drew circled windows and then cut the cardboard with the help of our school Caretaker, Mr Sean.

A simple cardboard box turned into our boat. The children were excited to paint the boat with their brushes!


The children painted some waves with their fingers!


We learned that we can use our milk cartons to make boats. Children tried to use their three fingers to hold and cut with a scissors the simple shapes they drew, like triangles and circles



”Stay and Play” Session with Parents


Today we had the chance to welcome the parents and carers of our 2-year-olds in the nursery for a special session. Tanya Cogan from the Children’s Centre helped us to set up a variety of activities that support Early Writing. Parents and children joined in the Mark Making adventure, enjoyed the painting, sand and foam but most of all the company of each other. Every child received a pack of resources and a Guide for Mark Making activities at home.
