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.

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.


To ensure that throughout their time with us; children are building their skills ready for their next stage in learning we have produced a progression of skills map. 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 


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