Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles are the foundations on which we base teaching, learning and social development at Leigh Primary School.

The five principles are embodied in our ACT RIGHT programme which is a bespoke programme created by our staff and pupils here as a ‘whole school’ project. Our Guiding Principles are on display in the heart of the school and serve to remind the whole community of our common purpose and goals. We believe these principals are at the heart of all we do here at Leigh Primary School. Further information about our ACT RIGHT Programme can be found on this website by clicking here.
