I started the day early at Deighton Gates Primary School in Wetherby...

Jeremy Dunford, the headteacher, talked to me about the school and some of the challenges they are facing in Wetherby with pupil numbers and surplus capacity. We also talked about literacy, numeracy, ICT, art, music, standards, homework, autism, extended services and developing a rich curriculum offer for every child. Charles King, Chair of Governors also visited the school and we went on a whistle stop tour of the buildings while most of the school were in assembly.

Jeremy and his colleagues have made a real impact on standards, on provision and on the buildings.
