My colleague Elaine Bown is one of our Primary School Improvement Advisers and she sent me this bit of great news...

"Hi Chris, given that we want a "world class" education system in Leeds, I thought you would enjoy hearing that Gledhow Primary School took part in World Maths Day and entered an on-line maths challenge initiated in Australia but entered by schools world wide. Throughout the day pupils have to answer maths questions and at one point Gledhow pupils were sitting 4th in the world!! One pupil managed to get into the top 50 of all the pupils internationally in the challenge and the school ranked very highly in the final count. The school does have some outstanding teachers and is moving from good to outstanding overall, so nice to have a story we can feel proud of! Elaine."

It's fantastic to hear about things like this, where our schools prove that they really are world class.
