At Hunslet Moor we recognise and value the importance of developing partnerships with other schools in the local authority in order to develop and share the skills and expertise of our school staff. Arooj (meaning rising up) is a project with a cluster of schools across Leeds, working together to focus on raising standards in teaching and learning in order to promote the best possible outcomes for all pupils, including those pupils with English as an additional language.
Many of our children have taken part in Arooj writing competitions; composing original poems and stories and producing beautiful calligraphy. You can find examples of these stories and poems in our school library, which have been published in an annual Arooj anthology.
In addition to the creative writing project, we are this year involved in further developing language in the Early Years through a specialist Word Aware training programme.
