Busy Half-term!

This has been a very busy half-term! There have been lots of things happening across the academy.

First, we had author of the Fabulous Four Fish Fingers visit us and show us some writing techniques!

Then, KS2 children put on an AMAZING performance called Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf.

We always cross our fingers for good weather when it comes to our Sports’ Days! This year we had beautiful weather and the children showed beautiful sportsmanship and resilience. Well done children!

In other events, this half-term, there has been a group of children spending one afternoon a week at DeLacy Academy working with poet, Conrad Burdekin, and other children from across six other SPTA academies. They created their own poetry while also learning how to perform. The culmination event had a special guest, Sir Paul Edwards, CEO of SPTA.


The Garforth Arts Festival has been running for 11 years and GLPA has always participated. This year was no exception with there being representation by the GLPA Samba band, GLPA choir and knitting club helping to Pom Pom the festival!

finally, along with the sporting success that included the GLPA Cricket team making it to Yorkshire County Finals and the KS1 Football team winning the Garforth tournament, the GLPA team won the Garforth Schools Sports’ Day as well! Well done to everyone involved!

There are still lots more to happen with the last week of school! This evening is the Summer Fair and next week sees us saying Good Bye to our Year 6 children! It will be an emotional week!
