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

Bombay Potatoes and Bug Biscuits!

3DC made pear and strawberry crumbles.

3WB cooked Bombay potatoes with FFS ingredients.

They invited their classmates to the cafe to try their dish.

Which was given the ‘thumbs up’!

RLS joined me this week to bake for their celebration event.

We baked some caterpillar cookies.

And some shortbread to make into ladybirds.

It was very exciting.

And we can’t wait until next Friday!

Powering through PowerPoint

This afternoon 3WB made huge progress in using PowerPoint to create a presentation about themselves.

Amaryllis developments!

Some interesting developments this week. After removing the leaves, plant A has produced a stem and it has started to grow over the last few days.  Plant B is still growing well.  Today some children wondered if it would stop growing taller and open up as a flower.  Some children wondered if it would bloom over the weekend.  We are looking forward to seeing it on Monday!


Plant B looks as if it is about to open.


The stem has become visible on plant A.

Growth on 27.1.17 Plant A: 6 cm Plant B: 56.5 cm
