    S1E10: Let's talk School Farms with Helen at Boothroyd Primary in Leeds

    This amazing primary school is located in a deprived area of Leeds whereby the special focus on the children's education here is on wellbeing.  Knowing that that also involves the staff providing them with calm areas and even a gym!  Whereby the children have real-life experiences at hand such as an in-school farm, class, cat, support dogs, the most amazing library I have ever seen, a wellbeing bus and just the most amazing staff. Plus much more, see the walk around on our TikTok and Youtube channels.

    Follow teacher Helen on Instagram at theartofearlyyears_
    and Headteacher @KrystieStubbs known as the Tattooed Headteacher.
