I went on to Kirkstall St Stephen's CE Primary School where Ian Blackburn and his team are doing great things...

I really enjoyed the opportunity to look around the school... it's a great building which Ian and his colleagues have worked hard to develop and the new early years unit is a wonderful addition.
Ian told me about 'Wake Up and Shake Up' which is being led by a fantastic colleague but they have developed it for their older children through their Sports Partnership with St Mary's Catholic High School into a scheme called 'Funky Freddie'. You can find out more by visiting the St Mary's website at

It was also interesting to see the programme the team were doing with their Year 5 and 6 children training them all over an eight week period to be able to deal with someone who is having a heart attack. Brillliant stuff.
