Green Lane Primary Academy is a Delta Academies Trust academy.  We are a high achieving two form entry academy with approximately 450 children and our results are above national figures. We have a well-deserved reputation for PE and Sport, having achieved School Games Gold status in 2018 and the Yorkshire PE and Sports Award in 2019 for Broader Sporting Experiences as a result of our Let’s Try Programme. This allows parents and children to try a new sport together, this year we have offered fencing, American football, lacrosse, synchronised swimming, and horse riding as examples. A broad and balanced curriculum is taught through our GLAM (Green Lane Academy Missions) and a quarter of our school population learn a musical instrument through our links with Garforth Academy and Roundhay Music. Whilst we are proud of our academic outcomes, this is underpinned by strong nurture and pastoral support, a knowledge driven broad curriculum and very active learning.  

We have a strong ethos with highly qualified and dedicated staff who believe in supporting the development of successful, well-rounded children who will become positive members of the community.

Delta Academies Trust are looking to build an elite team of exceptional leaders, teachers, and support staff to transform education in the North of England, in line with our vision of ‘changing lives’.  Our vision is to transform education across the North of England and level up the playing field for those children who live in disadvantaged circumstances. Our high expectations of students has created a culture and climate conducive to learning and as a result the progress made by all students across the Trust is extremely positive. The support from school leaders allows for innovative practitioners to practice their craft.  

We are committed to investing in staff of all levels and we will ensure you have access to high quality professional development through a formal CPD programme. As part of career development, we will give you the opportunity to work with a wide range of senior leaders, as well as to undertake formal NPQs etc.
