People who are interested in finding out more about adopting a child in Leeds are being invited to an information hub today. Leeds City Council is holding the drop-in event at The Light between 10am and 3pm.
The Council is particularly in need of adopters who can give a home to brothers and sisters, children of mixed heritage, children with disabilities, babies from birth and very young children who may have future development needs.
Representatives from Leeds City Council will meet lawyers later to discuss weather to pursue legal action over this year's GCSE exam results. They are concerned that one of the country's main examination boards, AQA, changed the goalposts for students without informing schools.
Officials say that the grading system was altered for English exams in such a way that two students completing their coursework or test and achieving the same mark may have been given different grades depending on whether they submitted their work in January (Grade C) or June (Grade D).
