I moved on to Whitecotes Primary School which is another fantastic little primary school...

It was great to see Karen Allen, the headteacher and her team who are doing some brilliant work in this bit of West Leeds. It was wonderful to see the school at work, to see the recent additions to the learning environment and the new playground markings and apparatus and to meet some of Karen's amazing colleagues and children. The school has been pioneering work on Every Child Counts which is having a really significant impact and working with its girls to raise expectations and aspirations since boys in this school outperform the girls and achieve outstanding results.

Karen and her team are doing some extra-ordinary things at Whitecote Primary School and releasing real magic with their children.
