About the Academy
On behalf of everyone at Green Lane Primary Academy welcome to our website. Our aim is to give you information and a taste of life at our Academy. We are always keen to welcome visitors to our Academy so please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit or require more information.
On the 1st November 2010, Garforth Green Lane Primary School became one of the first seven primary schools in England to become a primary academy and changed its name to Green Lane Primary Academy (GLPA).
GLPA is a successful school in the outer east side of Leeds in the community of Garforth and works in partnership with the Delta Academies Trust.
The academy has a strong ethos with highly qualified and dedicated staff who believe in supporting the development of successful, well-rounded children who will become positive members of the community. We have a good academic track record and we have high expectations for all of our children in terms of progress and attainment.
Green Lane has a 60 intake on entry from Reception to Year 6 with a 52 place nursery. The current roll includes 448 children from Nursery to Year 6. The academy has an outstanding reputation within the local community and surrounding areas and is highly preferenced for reception and in year transfer admissions. Over the last 5 years, GLPA has become a popular local primary with most mobility happening with new in-year transfers from new families moving into the area.
Good relationships exist with local partnerships including the Garforth Family of schools and other Leeds schools as well as other academies within the Delta Academies Trust group.
We understand that making the decision about which school your child attends is an important one, please come and meet us and look round the academy at any time by contacting the office or myself.
Our aim is provide high standards of care, teaching, learning and leadership so that all our children achieve their academic potential whilst learning to become confident and resilient children.
