Bramley Park Pupils Welcome Rachel Reeves MP

Just before the Easter break, staff and students at Bramley Park Academy proudly showed Leeds West MP and Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves around their recently rated outstanding school.

Bramley Park pupils were eager to meet Rachel and Bramley & Stanningley councillors Caroline Gruen, Tom Hinchcliffe and Kevin Ritchie. The visitors spent time in every key stage and learnt about the positive impact that Bramley’s 12 place specialist resource provision, LaunchPad, is having on pupils with Autism Spectrum Condition and communication needs.

Rachel spent time speaking with teachers and getting to know pupils, who made her day by revealing their favourite thing to do at school was maths!

Carrie Green, Executive Principal at Bramley Park Academy, said: “Bramley Park Academy has been on an incredible journey of improvement over the past few years. To go from special measures to outstanding in just five years is a phenomenal achievement. Pupils and staff alike are very proud of Bramley Park and they were thrilled to be able to showcase what a special place our school is to Rachel Reeves and the local councillors. It’s important to us to share our success story and show what’s possible with determination, ambition and a talented team which believes every child deserves the very best.”

Rachel Reeves MP, added: “It was wonderful to be shown around Bramley Park Academy and see how far it has come in recent years. From excellent teachers to engaged pupils, there is so much Bramley Park Academy can be proud of.”
