MP Mulholland presents new awards for Bramhope Primary School

October 7, 2014 12:36 PM

Greg Mulholland MP has congratulated the children, staff and governors of Bramhope Primary School on achieving three important awards at the start of the current school year.

The school has met the demanding standards for the Equalities Award, the International Schools Award and the Healthy Schools award and all three were presented in a whole school assembly on Thursday, also attended by Greg and Dr Sally Kendall, the Equalities Award representative. They heard from pupils about the work that had been done to gain the awards and how the standards that they have put in place will be maintained in the future. Bramhope Primary School is the first school in Leeds to receive the Equalities Award.

Greg Mulholland commented:

"These three important awards show Bramhope Primary School's commitment to treating everyone equally, of thinking of others here and throughout the world, and recognising each individual's rights to equal treatment and to the highest standards of care. I am delighted that a school in my constituency is the first in Leeds to receive the Equalities Award and congratulate them on this achievement."

Mrs Pauline Lawson, Headteacher of Bramhope Primary School, paid tribute to the work of pupils, staff, governors and parents who came together to plan and carry out the work to gain the awards.

Mrs Lawson said:

"We are delighted that our work to develop respect for ourselves and others has been recognised. The children understand how important it is to learn about and from other cultures and to keep healthy. I would like to thank the school community who have worked together to achieve the awards. A fantastic achievement!"
