LJFS shares a site not only with Brodetsky Primary School and Deborah Taylor Nursery, but also with The Zone.
The Zone Youth and Community Centre is currently accessed by 13 schools across Leeds and provides an extensive offer of extra-curricular activities. All students of LJFS have access to The Zone after school hours, replacing travel time with opportunities for further learning and a strong social life. This means that whilst our students are advantaged by small class sizes during school hours, extra–curricular activities involving The Zone will allow interaction with young people from across Leeds.
Sports are offered to students both within the curriculum and voluntarily as extra–curricular activity. Where one of our students demonstrates they have a sporting talent, LJFS have committed to help the student access coaching to further develop and nurture their talents. Current extra curricular activities include trampolining, table tennis and running. Other non sporting activities include Japanese, Maths, English and homework clubs.
Where a student is already involved in high level or elite sporting activities, the school ensures appropriate school-based guidance is offered to ensure they meet the demands of school study and their chosen sporting discipline. The school, The Zone and Leeds Maccabi Football club will be working closely together to develop a rich level of sports provision.
