Emma Fieldhouse

Deputy Head Teacher

At South Parade we successfully launched Primary Futures in Wakefield which started a chain of events across the district. This was in February 2018 and Primary Futures is still going strong with more and more children being inspired by volunteers going into Primary Schools. Life long learning threads through our whole curriculum here and we use any opportunities for people from the world of work to come in and support lessons, such as through our weekly university afternoons.

Primary Futures is something I am very passionate about and I have been involved in supporting lots of schools (including in other local authorities) to run their own events. I have also worked alongside the team at Primary Futures Headquarters in London to support them in their work.
