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.

Leighton School’s Eco Council would like us to get involved in the British Iron Work Centre’s School Recycling Project. Please see overleaf for more information.
If we can collect enough tin cans then we can have a free school trip to the British Iron Work Centre. We are hoping to learn lots about recycling through the project too.
So, we are asking children to bring thoroughly washed tin cans in to school. The tin cans can be placed in the collection bucket in the entrance hall of the main school building.
Again can we ask that all tin cans are thoroughly washed as they will need to be stored in school before being collected.
As you know we were recently re-visited by an Estyn inspection team in order to assess the progress of our school with regard to recommendations derived from the 2015 inspection. These included areas regarding pupil attainment, additional learning needs provision, pupil attendance, planning for improvement, self-evaluation and the use of Welsh.
I am very pleased to share with you the outcome of the visit.
The Estyn inspection team judged that Leighton CP School had made Strong to Very Good Progress in all areas.
I would like to thank all staff, parents, Governors, and especially our children, for supporting our school on this successful journey.
Together, we can now continue to consolidate this great progress.
Diolch yn fawr i chi i gyd / Many thanks to you all.
Good attendance underpins your child’s progress in school. As the New Year begins we’d like to ask for your full support in ensuring that your child works towards a personal target of a minimum 96% attendance.
Each week in our whole school assembly we celebrate the best attendance rates – with rewards going to the best class; so please work with us, your child, and their classmates to make sure the rewards are enjoyed!
Any attendance of less than 90% will be followed up so that any support needed to help improvement can be offered. We would also prefer that family holidays within school time are avoided wherever possible.
Many thanks for your support in continuing to improve our attendance rates.
