We were visited by Vaughan from Constructiv Clothing this week, to be presented with a certificate outlining our uniform’s green credentials. Our School Council and Eco Committee are now looking at the addition of PE sports hoodies – more to follow.
Our school uniform has been updated to be more eco-friendly, although the transition to the updated version is open ended, so no need to replace anything until you are ready to.
Our sweatshirt (v neck), polo shirt and cardigan colour is still burgundy, although the badge has been updated (as above). Grey trousers/skirts/pinafore’s, with grey or burgundy tights/socks. Shoes remain black. Our new summer dress colour will be amber/gold.
PE kit will be amber/gold polo shirt, with black shorts/skirt and socks.
Our uniform supplier is now Constructiv Clothing, at 20 Church Street, Welshpool, SY21 7LH, with all items available to try on for size in the local shop; Leighton book-bags are also available.
The range should be centre stage in the shop window over the Easter weekend.
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!’
