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

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I am proud to be the Headteacher at St. Leonard’s CofE Primary & Nursery School. We are located in the beautiful village of Wigginton and have a very strong community who are keen to support our school. Our strong Christian ethos underpins everything we do and everyone associated with our school is committed to helping our children ‘Grow in Faith and Learning’. Caroline Hall - Headteacher.


English Intent Statement


At St. Leonard’s, our intent is to instil a love and passion for reading and writing in every child. We want children to flourish by giving them access to a rich English curriculum based on high quality texts. Our aim is to give the children the opportunities to write across a range of genres and for different audiences and purposes, and to read a variety of books from different authors and topics. In our school, English is to be the foundation for every subject in our curriculum, and the skills that children develop in their English lessons are to be transferred across the whole curriculum.


This year, we are working on the following areas:

  1. Ensuring that the implementation of the new SSP (Systematic Synthetic Phonics) programme is effective. 
  2. To create a new school library.
  3. To ensure effective teaching and learning of reading in KS2 through whole class guided reading. 


If you would like any more information about how English is taught and assessed in our school, please don't hesitate to contact me using the contact details below.
