Growing In Faith and Learning

Welcome to St. Leonard's Church of England Primary School

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 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’. Catherine Young- Headteacher.


English is taught for a minimum of 1 hour per day in years 1-6. Other English activities, such as individual and group reading, extended writing, spelling and handwriting activities are also taught in addition to this.In general, English lessons will involve a mixture of whole class teaching, group work and independent work. The main teaching points are consolidated in a plenary session in which pupils are given time to review, reflect, discuss and evaluate their work and learning. In Foundation Stage and Key Stage One, children will take part in a  phonics lesson for 20 minutes a day from Monday to Friday and children in Key Stage Two have a 20 minute spelling lesson each day, often using material from Read, Write Inc Spelling.   Children are encouraged to take reading books home and each child is given a record book/planner to record their daily reading. For tips on supporting your child with their reading, see our class pages.
