Leodis Schools Alliance



Our School Partnership


Hugh Gaitskell Primary School is part of the Leodis Schools Alliance. This partnership includes Lane End Primary, Barwick C of E Primary, Hunslet Moor Primary, Methley Primary and Beeston Primary School.


These successful primary schools work together to share teaching and learning strategies and to embed effective leadership across all schools within the Alliance.


Our priorities for this academic year are:

1) To share effective practices across the Alliance which will impact positively on the quality of teaching and learning across individual schools.

2) To improve the standards of writing through the application of spelling across the curriculum

3) To develop the effectiveness of all leaders, including governance to maximise outcomes for all learners.


Various networking groups across the Alliance have been set up and meet on a regular basis. These meetings include clear action planning and the implementation of various strategic processes/systems in order to achieve our shared priorities.


Leodis Schools Alliance will ultimately ensure that teaching and learning remains strong at Hugh Gaitskell Primary School by investing in our staff and children.
