Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Leighton Primary and Preschool!

I am privileged to introduce myself as the new Headteacher of Leighton.  I joined in April 2024 and am looking forward to working with everyone.  

Pupils at Leighton are kind, caring and supportive of each other and enjoy their learning. From my time here so far, I have seen that children and staff are keen to demonstrate our values of , 'Ambition, Respect, Community'.  

Leighton is a vibrant community school where our hard working team of staff and governors are committed to providing a high quality education for our children within a safe and stimulating environment.

Our exciting curriculum is carefully designed to motivate children and spark their interests while taking into account the unique context that is Leighton. Our dedicated staff support each child to develop their confidence, celebrate their talents and achievements, enable them to grow into responsible citizens and achieve the very best they can.  

We recognise and celebrate the uniqueness of every child. We nurture the children in order to develop learning experiences that help them to ‘Achieve and Grow Together’ so they can reach their full potential. 

We are committed to working closely with our parents whilst striving to develop an open, honest and transparent partnership.  We actively promote parental involvement and engagement in the education of our children and school life. We endeavour to ensure that as parents you are well-informed and provide you with many opportunities to be involved in your children’s learning and achievements.  

Our school website is designed to give you a flavour of life at our school. However, we would be delighted for you to visit Leighton and see for yourself. In the meantime, please take a few moments to enjoy the ‘virtual tour’ that is available on the website. 

The Governors, Staff and Children are very proud of our school and I look forward to welcoming you and your child to Leighton. 

Mrs A Woolner
