Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the website for Christ Church Upper Armley CE Primary School. We hope to use this website as one element of communication in our drive to fulfil our mission ‘To work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower.’  We hope the website will enable you to discover the ways in which Christ Church Upper Armley CE Primary School stretches pupils academically, supports them pastorally and helps them to develop socially and spiritually.

At Abbey Multi Academy Trust we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of all our children. They are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to inspire learners and change their lives as a result of our educational provision. We want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them as well as giving them safety, security and the skills they will need to be active, responsible citizens and happy, caring adults in the future.  Our aim, quite simply, is to do the very best for children and recognise their individuality and uniqueness.  Childhood is a special and wonderful time and no-one gets a second chance at it.

The primary and secondary schools within Abbey Multi Academy Trust are prepared to truly collaborate. The schools have a desire to question, change and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We work as active partners both formally, as part of our growing Multi Academy Trust and informally, in the collaborative work we do with the Diocese, local universities, local and national business and our local community.

We hope the website will enable you to discover the ways in which Christ Church Upper Armley CE Primary School stretches pupils academically, supports them pastorally and helps them to develop socially and spiritually.​

Mrs Helen Pratten

Co-CEO & Executive Headteacher (Primary)

Welcome to the website of Christ Church Upper Armley Primary School, situated in a vibrant and diverse community, less than a mile from Leeds city centre. We are a warm and welcoming school, steeped in 150 years of history. Our past pupils include the writers Alan Bennett and Barbara Taylor-Bradford, and we continue to celebrate and nurture the talents of all our pupils.

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher at Christ Church, as I believe it to be a very special place where ‘Hand in hand we learn’. Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to work with parents, carers and the local community as we believe that the development of our young people requires committed support from all the adults in their lives.

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. As a Church school we can take our inspiration from -

‘The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control’

(Galatians 5:22-23)

If you are considering Christ Church Upper Armley for your child’s education, please email or phone the school office to arrange a visit or to ask us any questions. We look forward to meeting you.
