Growing In Faith and Learning

'Growing in Faith and Learning' 'Life in all it's fullness' John 10:10

Welcome to St Leonard's CofE Primary School

Welcome to St. Leonard’s Church of England Primary School. We hope our website gives you a flavour of our vibrant, happy school and the achievements of our delightful children. We are a thriving church school in the picturesque village of Wigginton with a strong Christian ethos, growing in faith and learning. We passionately believe in developing the ‘whole child’ and ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their goals and shine in their own unique and wonderful way. Our kind, caring and dedicated team nurture, motivate and encourage our children to be confident and well-rounded members of their community. I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of St. Leonard’s, a place where children develop a passion for learning, feel good about themselves, are proud of their achievements and create lasting memories of friendship and connection in our school family. I warmly invite you to come and visit us at St. Leonard’s Mrs Kirsty Cullen, Headteacher.

Collective Worship

The peace of God, which surpasses all understanding,

will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:7

Collective Worship

Collective worship is the heartbeat of our school. It drives our vision and values and gives us the opportunity to worship together; to reflect and to hope. 


Worship at St. Leonard's comes in may forms including whole school worships; class worships; global worships; celebrations; worship at church; family worship; guided mediation and celebration of key Christian celebrations which are led by different classes at different times throughout the year. This often involves singing; drama; readings; reflection; prayer; stilling and opportunities to put our faith into action. 


Pupils and staff at St. Leonard's love to worship together. It is a protected time at St. Leonard's and all children come together daily. 


Each term we follow a worship rota, put together by Mrs. Hunt our worship lead to ensure continuity and progression. We use a wonderful scheme called Roots and Fruits for the majority of our worship times. We encourage children to take an active lead in worship and each year group takes turns to help plan and deliver worship. 


We keep a scrap book of our worships including some of the very valuable contributions of our pupils.
