School's awards and initiatives



We are delighted to have achieved the Primary Science Quality mark Gilt award for PSQM awarded in July 2021. 


This is the feedback we received:


What an absolute joy to read this submission. The Subject Leader and staff team have responded brilliantly to the challenge of achieving PSQM Gilt – and at the most difficult of times. The submission is bursting with quality. It is evident that the Subject Leader’s thinking about science has constantly developed as a result of the commitment to monitoring science (amongst other things); in response initiating change and offering solutions. She has been well supported by senior leaders, which is great to know; with time, direct support – early monitoring, CPD for herself and for others. A real team effort.

Massive congratulations to Corrie (and Julie – second named on this review form). Your enthusiasm and passion are evident, and I have no doubt that science at Adel Primary will continue to go from strength to strength. Very well done!

Nicola Beverley: PSQM Reviewer

Congratulations to our Early Years team for being one of the first schools in Leeds to gain Healthy Schools Early Years status.



At Adel we aim to consistently provide a culture of creativity and inspiration for our children. We are always looking for different strategies to raise children's attainment and attitudes as well as their physical health and emotional well being. That's why we have adopted BURN2LEARN as a way to enthuse, excite and engage children in the classroom!


This physically active learning approach is delivered across all subjects and strives to get the children off their seats, not only as a way to raise attainment but improve children's health, communication, leadership and life skills. During each BURN2LEARN lesson or activity, children aspire to meet certain outcomes which helps them to evaluate their own learning and contribution to the task. Tasks will often include the children taking on the role of an "Inspirator". This child must motivate, praise, observe and organise the other members of their team.


At Adel Primary School we pride ourselves on our caring, vibrant and inclusive ethos, which is why our Investors in Pupils award is so special to us.  We are proud to say that we have now revalidated or award for 2021 -22.  



We have received the school games gold award for 3 years running . This is for our involvement in competitive sports both within the curriculum and after school clubs.
