About Us

A walk around Iveson Primary reveals a beautifully spacious school with reading at its heart. It boasts two well-resourced libraries, one for each Key Stage, with Little Book Libraries in the grounds for families to access. Walk in to any classroom and you will note that ‘Pupils across the school are engaged in their learning and keen to do well’ (Ofsted May 2019). The extensive grounds are used to enhance education and rooms have been developed providing space for music, art, sensory needs and a game board library


Iveson today is the result of a shared vision, that has seen the school transform in outcomes, standards and perception. On becoming Head in September 2015 the school faced a significant number of challenges; situated in an affluent area of North Leeds it’s located in a small pocket of significant deprivation serving a diverse community with a range of needs. Rarely the first choice for parents seeking schools it had been judged as requiring improvement for a number of years prior to a good inspection in May 2015. The curriculum had been narrowed to focus on improving data outcomes, this had a negative impact on some children resulting in poor behaviour and there had been staffing changes at all levels.
