Social Action for Jane Tomlinson Appeal

Thank you to Ahead Partnership for their lovely article about our pupils involvement in the Social Action for Jane Tomlinson Appeal project.

Leeds charity Jane Tomlinson Appeal challenged 20 students from Carr Manor School to come up with a brand new fundraising idea as part of a Social Action project we've been running with the school. The event, activity or idea had to raise both money and awareness within the school about the charity. This was a chance for students to get creative, take initiative, develop business skills, and make a difference in the community.

The charity was there along the way to explain how they use fundraising money to benefit families and services supporting people with cancer. There was also support from business coaches at law firm Capsticks who helped the students to develop their ideas and host a presentation workshop.

School League Tables

Information from BBC News and

The secondary school league tables have recently been published for 2018. These tables use raw GCSE results from last year and a raft of data from the Department for Education to evaluate how well pupils progress in a school.

You can see the league table for schools and colleges in Leeds here. We are pleased to say we are 11th out of all schools in Leeds for overall performance and 3rd for overall performance out of maintained schools in Leeds.

Careers Fair

On Wednesday 31st January we held a Careers Fair with Ahead Partnership, for pupils in Years 5, 8, 9, 10 and 11.  Over 25 businesses attended, and they spoke about the different education and career paths that are available to pupils when they leave school.

Some of the organisations who attended include Appris, ITV, Royal Air Force and the University of Law.

There were lots of positive comments from the businesses, saying;"The pupils were well engaged and were asking excellent questions, but at the same time listened really well." Some of the businesses thought that pupils had been prepped prior to the event, due to the kind of questions being asked. 


Holocaust Memorial

On Friday 26th January, we streamed the live webcast of a Holocaust survivor, Janine Webber, speaking about her experiences from the Holocaust.

Over 60 pupils signed up to attend the broadcast and we were honoured to listen to her inspiring yet emotional story.the-power-of-words-logo

Restorative Practice Conference

We held a Restorative Practice Development Day on Monday 22nd January with visitors from Wickersley School & Sports College, Eastfield Primary School and Oasis Lister Park.

The visitors heard about how we work restoratively at Carr Manor through building positive relationships between staff and pupils. They met with a selection of RP representatives, who spoke about the ethos’ of Carr Manor, particularly Coaching, our mission statements, our Further and Flexible Learning options and the impact Restorative Practice has at Carr Manor.

A selection of RP pupils also attended a Restorative event in Middlesbrough on Thursday 2th January. The conference was ‘An Introduction to Restorative Practice’ and pupils shared our RP journey with the other visitors.

The event was held at Riverside Stadium, the home of Middlesbrough F.C. After the conference, pupils received a tour of the stadium grounds and changing rooms, which they really enjoyed.

Reception Trip To Rainbow Factory

Reception pupils visited the Rainbow Factory last week!

They had lots of fun meeting characters from fairy-tales and hearing their stories, having a walk through the Enchanted Forest and they took part in
some drama sessions to help them learn how to tell their own stories!

We hope pupils enjoyed their trip and have been telling their Coaching groups all about their visit.

Food Preparation & Nutrition

Mrs Worthington’s Accelerated Food Preparation and Nutrition group have been taking inspiration from European countries and have planned, prepared and cooked some amazing dishes from their chosen country.

The pupils selected a wide variety of countries and sweet and savoury dishes, and some fantastic skills were shown. We had everything from Pizza, Calzone, Churros with chocolate, Paella and Turkish Baklava to freshly made Spaghetti Vongole and freshly cooked Lobster in a hollandaise sauce served with rice, baked sweet potatoes with a side of fresh king prawns!

A big congratulations to the pupils who created these amazing dishes!
