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:

Monday 26 June 5pm-7pm

Pancake Day

Nursery have been decorating and tasting pancakes. They had a range of toppings to try including bananas, blueberries, honey, lemon and sugar. They children really enjoyed choosing what they would put on their pancake and then sitting with their friends to taste them!

Spinning Top

Nursery have enjoyed exploring our new toy, the giant spinning top. They took turns sitting in it and spinning around, helping each other to move it if they got stuck. The spinning top is a good resource for the children to develop their core muscles and it’s also lots of fun!!!


Real life Superheroes!

This week we have been thinking about real life superheroes such as doctors, police officers and firefighters. We focused on firefighters and what they do to help us. The children have worked really well together this week to make a large fire engine out of boxes. They had to work as a team to decide what to do with some support from the adults! We had lots of fun using our fire engine in our role play fire station!
