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.

MFL Statement of Intent


At St Leonard’s we aim to encourage an interest in language learning in a way that is stimulating and exciting. We intend to embed the skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing necessary to enable children to apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning. Through their learning they will also develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.


Useful Information


Do you want to know what your child will be learning in French?


Below you will find a copy of our MFL policy which will give you an idea of what we are aiming to achieve in French at St. Leonard's. You will also find a copy of our long term curriculum map. In our school, we follow a two year rolling programme (as we have mixed age classes). This ensures that children have full coverage of the National Curriculum and do not repeat any topics/learning.


We want to ensure that throughout their time with us, children are building their skills ready for their next stage in learning. Therefore we have produced a progression of skills map (see below). Take a look at the map to see what is expected of your child at the end of each year group.


Finally, I have added a link to the National Curriculum for MFL. 


If you have any MFL related questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Cooke who leads the subject in our school.
