Welcome to the PIW page - my name is Emma Corrigan and I’m the Parental Involvement Worker here at Lees. I can be contacted by phoning or emailing the school office. I can also be found outside around school most mornings. We have a very popular Facebook page which has lots of information and photos on so please check it out. We have various events running throughout school so please look out for emails and information on our FB page.
Please click below for information from AWARE(Airedale & Wharfedale Autism Resource) for their final Parent Information Event on 22nd June. This can be attended by any parent who has a child with a recent autism diagnosis or on the autism pathway.
A special message from the staff at Lees Primary School...
Please keep checking our Lees Primary School Facebook page as it is regularly updated with information, challenges, activities and photos from our school community. It’s always lovely to see what everyone is up to at home and we hope that sharing the photos will help to bring us together in these difficult and challenging times - Mrs.Corrigan

October Half Term activities
Stay safe this half term. West Yorkshire Police have posted this information and remember, we want you to post photos on our Facebook page of your window decorations for us to share. Also, FoLees have their pumpkin competition for you to take part in.
We will be creating another wonderful and thoughtful display outside of school for this years Remembrance Day. We would love the children and their families to contribute by painting a poppy on a rock so we can place them with the display of poppies. Painted rocks can be left at the school entrance once we return to school after the half term break. Thank you for your support.
Lees Virtual Lockdown Journey
As we are unable to actually travel anywhere during this lockdown how about we go on a virtual journey together as a school. Everyone can join in - children and families, staff and friends of Lees - and who knows where in the world we will end up! Each day keep a track of how far you walk or run, during your daily exercise or around your garden, and send the distance, in miles, to the School Facebook page. I will then keep a record, track our progress and see where we end up each day.
Our first target was London which we reached with everyone's help. Remember, if there are 3 of you on a 1 mile walk you need to tell me your total is 3 miles.
Let's come together as a school community and have some fun, each day I will post the update on Facebook. Photos can also be sent, along with name and distance.
Get moving everyone - let's see just how far we can travel together !

Opening times for Lees Library
Lees Library can be found on the playground here at Lees Primary School. We have been working very hard to organise the books, create an outdoor reading area and run Story Time sessions so please come along and see what the library has to offer, encourage your child to borrow a book or just come and say hello.
The library is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunch times. It is also open some mornings before school so if the light is on and there is a Librarian in then please come in. See below for the opening times. The Library is being run by parent and children volunteers so there may be times when it's not open. If you would like to be involved in any way please contact us here at school.

Read Together Sessions in the Library
Here at Lees we love to read and we run sessions to give parents/carers the opportunity to come into school and enjoy reading with their child. The dates for each session are below. You need to arrive at the school reception by 2.45pm and we will then collect the children and all go over to the library. Your child will then be returned to their class and you will need to collect them from the usual door at the end of the school day.
Dates for the next sessions to be arranged.
Coffee Afternoons at Lees
We hold coffee afternoons in the School Library on a Friday afternoon from 2.15pm every month. Please come along for a chat, find out what's happening around school or just to say hello.
We have tea, coffee, juice and of course a biscuit or two!
Dates for the next Coffee Afternoon to be arranged.
The dates on the following links have now expired but I’ve left them on as they have contact details if you would like any more information.
