Welcome to Leighton Academy

Dear parents/carers and children of Leighton Academy,

We hope you are keeping yourselves and others safe in these unprecedented times. We recognise that these are anxious times for all and we don’t want to add to that anxiety by forcing children to complete new learning. At this point, the government are working with various companies to ensure all children have access to the same learning platforms.


You can find lots of ideas on the home learning tabs and our recommendation is to spend as much time reading, talking, playing board games and having quality family time. Please don’t put yourselves or the children under too much pressure by attempting to fit too much into a schedule that cannot be met.

We will continue to add ideas to the home learning pages and children can complete tasks on purple mash also. Staff will be able to respond to these at times however we are not setting this as an expectation as some staff are still working in school and staff may become ill.

For any further support, please contact your child's class teacher via the email address on the home learning page.

Take care,

Mrs Young and Mrs Thompson
