Welcome from Mrs Sheerin

Thank you for creating such positive memories for myself and my child. (parent)

Leeds Communication Friendly Standard

We are the first school in the city to be awarded this standard. We are delighted to have been recognised for our work to develop the language skills of our children. Our children are now becoming confident, articulate speakers who have the skills they need to succeed at school and in later life.

White Laith is a vibrant, energetic, positive school community in which we all work and learn together with the desire and determination to succeed. We work HARD!

We are excited about learning, about doing small things well and then, as a result, growing in confidence, making great progress and achieving great things.

Children are actively encouraged to take full responsibility for not only their own learning and actions but for the collective successes of the school. 

It is a place we want to come to everyday! 

We hope our website contains the information you need and provides a flavour of some of the things we do....however please come and visit if you want to find out more and experience the feeling of White Laith for yourself!
