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.


Curriculum Intent Statement


We provide a curriculum of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief. Learning is irresistible through the breadth of exciting curricular and extra-curricular opportunities provided for our pupils as well as the launches and celebrations planned for each of our themes. Inquisitiveness is encouraged by asking pupils to pose and answer their own ‘BIG’ questions and develop their spirituality. 


Achievement for all is high and individual talents are nurtured. Our curriculum is designed to enable our pupils to leave us as successful, independent learners and happy and confident individuals. Through our curriculum we aim to develop a generation of caring, responsible citizens that are excited by challenge, change and possibility.

Through the curriculum we promote a love of reading and demonstrate to pupils that Reading is key to their learning. Our curriculum immerses pupils in topics linked to high quality texts and reading for pleasure is highly encouraged.

We want our pupils and staff to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10) and to flourish in our care.

At St. Leonard's CE Primary School all class teachers are responsible for providing a curriculum that is suitable for all pupils in the class, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND) with support from the SENCo. We have high expectations for all pupils and are committed to ensuring our curriculum complies with the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability regulations 2014. We provide a fully inclusive learning environment for all pupils including those with SED. Additional information can be found on our Special Educational Needs Page. 


Many of these areas of study are taught through cross-curricular in topics. As well as meeting National Curriculum objectives we make sure our curriculum also includes a wow factor, plenty of opportunities for SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) development and regular references to British Values.
