I started the day yesterday at Valley View Primary School...

What a transformation! Sarah Griggs and her team have created something really special and are certainly beginning to build a strong and successful primary school to serve this piece of Leeds. Once you step inside the building you realise how much work Sarah and her colleagues have put into this. The place feels so different... light, bright, modern and a wonderfully stimulating learning environment for the children.

I briefly visited Sarah's breakfast club, had breakfast with the whole school learning team and was then shown around the school by Ashley, Jade, Kerryn, Louise and Rachel. The children were fantastic advocates for the school; three had come from Aireview Primary School and two from Rodley Primary School and they made a brilliant team... confident, knowledgeable, articulate and helpful.

It is wonderful to see what has been achieved in such a short time at Valley View Primary School and anyone who took the time to visit would understand that Sarah and her team are working hard to release a very special kind of magic.
