Our School

Leigh School Logo

Good processes and practices are used to promote equity and excellence in children’s outcomes. The school charter, learning programmes and teacher appraisals have a clear common focus on improving practices to ensure all children are successful learners. The principal, trustees, staff and children show a sense of pride and belonging in the school.

The above Vision and Mission and Values Statement was revised by the BOT during 2014 using the information and feedback from our November 2013 community consultation meeting, plus additional feedback on the draft version from our school whanau and the wider Leigh community.

Our revised Strategic Plan is guided by this vision and these beliefs – so we hope reflect the goals and aspirations of our whole community.

The school enjoys high levels of community engagement. The principal and trustees seek, value and include the perspectives of the school’s community in planning and decision-making. Strengthening and extending partnerships with parents/whānau to support their children’s learning and progress has been identified as a priority.
