The schools in this area have a long-established practice of working closely together within the Elmete Partnership of Schools & Services (EPoSS) Family of Schools. Nine of these schools (including Primrose Lane) took this collaboration further in January 2014 by setting up The Wharfe Valley Learning Partnership (WVLP). Since then we've been delighted to welcome Crossley Street Primary and St Joseph's Catholic Primary School to our partnership.
The Partnership is an Educational Trust, enabling each school to keep its unique identity and autonomy, whilst simultaneously working closely together to benefit our children, young people and communities.
Together, these popular and successful school have a secure base on which to build a strong, effective partnership. The Governing Boards of these schools believe that a Trust of this kind is the best way to ensure the long term, sustainable collaboration that is required to meet our common aims.
The WVLP seeks to develop practice across the schools to further enhance the provision and opportunities available to our children and young people, maintaining and improving their already high standards of attainment and achievement. It collaborates closely with other organisations, such as Leeds City Council services and providers of higher education and others, so that we can serve our children, young people, families and communities most effectively.
