School Families

At Great Leighs Primary school we are organised into five very special families.  Each child and member of staff is in a family, which is the name of a tree.

We meet twice per term in our family to share ideas and fun activities.  We collect family points each week for excellent work, being respectful and good behaviour. A cup is awarded in Achievement Assembly each week for the family that has collected the most points.

Check the foyer display for this week’s winner.

2017/2018 Family Groups

In each family group, the Year 6 children gave a presentation on why they wanted to lead the family and the skills they had to do this.  Following the presentations the other family members voted for their leaders.  Here are the successful Family Captains and Vice-Captains.


Congratulations and good luck in your new roles.

Keep up with what the families get up to here!


Queen Elizabeth II Birthday

The children had a great morning on Thursday finding out lots of information about the Queen in their classes before having a fun, artistic time in their families.


Something special for Mother’s Day

On Wednesday 2nd, all of the families in the school (Hazel, Birch, Oak, Ash and Elm) got together and did something special for our mum’s for Mother’s Day.


Family Dance Competition

There were so many dances for our KS2 dance competition this year – 20 to be precise! Well done to all children for creating their own dances, for practising them and for entertaining the rest of the school on Tuesday afternoon.
