Welcome from our Head of School

I am delighted to welcome you to Leesons Primary - a school where individuals are valued and helped to achieve their personal best.  Children are supported in becoming confident and independent young people, who thrive on challenge, and are motivated to learn.  All schools have their own distinctive ‘feel’ which makes each one unique. We believe that the ‘special feel’ at Leesons Primary comes from our caring, supportive and friendly environment.

I am extremely proud to lead a team that is committed to children's well-being, achieving high standards and providing the very best opportunities for all in our care.  Staff, supported by governors, work hard to deliver a rich and challenging curriculum; to prepare children for future education; and to help them acquire the skills and enthusiasm needed to embrace the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

This excellent start begins in our Early Years provision and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive and purposeful environment, and a curriculum that aims to excite and stimulate children’s imaginations and creative thinking.  The curriculum is delivered through a cross-curricular approach which is further enhanced by whole-school themed days and other events to promote enquiry-led learning.  Frequent trips and visits, community activities and an increasing range of after school clubs further add to the opportunities available to children.

I want to ensure children develop self-esteem, self-worth and a sense of pride in themselves and their school. I am committed to a vision where children respect and understand the needs of others, work well together and contribute fully to the life of the school, making it an amazingly enriched community. I believe that a flying start in our children’s school lives will enable them to flourish and develop into unique and self-confident individuals, who can contribute fully to and thrive in the wider world. 

To find out about our school, we encourage you to come and visit, to see us in action and meet our dedicated staff and caring children.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school, and to a happy and successful partnership with all our new children and families.
