Thanks to all parents who were kind enough to give up their time to assist (and lead) with lots of school maintenance and improvement jobs – it’s really worthwhile and helps us to keep our school looking as good as it can 🙂
We have achieved Healthy Schools Phase 4 status!
Congratulations to all at Leighton Primary school for achieving Phase 4 of the Powys Healthy Schools Award.
I’m writing to give some feedback from the morning which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
‘The highlight of our visit was the great understanding the Schools council and Eco council had in regards what it is to be a healthy school. Pupil participation came across very strong where the pupils we met felt happy and proud to be a part of the Leighton School community.
A strength was the consistent approach from foundation phase to Yr 6 towards ensuring emotional health and wellbeing of the children was valued through programs such as KIVA, Value systems, Premier League Stars, Incredible Years, Golden time, Playtime rota, good behaviour awards in assembly, buddy step, feelings charts, Police Core Liaison program and more.
It was clear Physical activity was embedded in the daily life of the school with a range of after school clubs, sports ambassadors and active playtimes. Healthy eating was always encouraged with Healthy living assemblies, Fruit time in KS1 and rolling out to KS2.
There is a strong Leighton community with an active FOLS (Friends of Leighton School) organising Macmillan Coffee mornings, sponsored dribble etc and it was great to see all the work achieved on ‘Love your school day ’with the incredible bug house!’
After a fantastic 22 and a half years at Leighton, Heidi is moving on to new adventures. Her commitment and dedication to our school has always been First Class, and her bright and cheery approach has always brought the best out of our children.
They will all, past and present, want to wish her all the very best in whatever she chooses to do next.
Leighton CP School says a MASSIVE THANK YOU to Heidi for all that you’ve contributed throughout the years – and we hope that you’ll be a regular visitor in the future.
