Big Trunk Trail – Keech Hospice

Thank you for all your support, we can now introduce you to the marvelous ‘Miss Honey’ who has been designed and decorated to represent Leagrave on the upcoming ‘Big Trunk Trail.’

We are very close to meeting our £1000 target. With your donations on Friday 27th May, we are confident we will reach £1000.

Miss Honey portrays a variety of popular children’s books in memory of our very much loved and missed, Mrs Peirce. Her love of reading and enthusiasm for dressing up on World Book Day is a memory to cherish and we hope this tribute will inspire readers of all ages during their time at Leagrave.

Charity Support for a School in Belize

Our school is passionate about helping those in need and believe that everyone has a right to a good education.  We have developed close links with a school in Belize, who have very few resources to support their curriculum, and we want to do our best to help them.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

This year, Leagrave Primary School hosted a coffee morning, in order to raise money for the charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. Many cakes were generously donated and bought, making this worthwhile cause a huge success!

Harvest Festival – Food Bank

Year 3 presented their annual Harvest assembly. This was well attended and the children did an amazing production of the story of the Little Red Hen.

At this time of sharing, two hundred and sixty four food donations were delivered to a local food bank in Luton, by members of our School Council and were well received. All food was donated to the local food bank to support local families.


Odd Socks Day for Anti-Bullying Week – Anti-Bullying Alliance

During anti-bullying week, incorporating the theme of ‘All Different, All Equal’ children across the school were given fun and engaging opportunities to express themselves, appreciate individuality and celebrate uniqueness. We believe that by encouraging acceptance of individuality at an early age, this can help prevent bullying.

On Wednesday, we took part in Odd Sock Day. The socks worn by the children were crazy and colourful. In addition to this, many activities also took place including a performance of an anti-bullying rap, writing of anti-bullying poetry, recipes for good friendship and class debates. All of this wonderful work was showcased in a whole school assembly.
