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.


Statement of Intent


At St. Leonard's Primary, a high-quality geography education inspires children to develop curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching equips them with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As they progress, our children's growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge, understanding and skills provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

Geography Useful Information


Subject Leader- Mr.


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


Below you will find a copy of our Geography policy which will give you an idea of what we are aiming to achieve in Geography 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. For Geography we have decided to split these skills into knowledge and practical skills. Take a look at the progression skills to see what is expected of your child at the end of each year group.


Whilst in Geography lessons we are focusing on 'Geography' skills we also expect children to apply their English and Maths skills and in other contexts.


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


If you have any Geography related questions please do not hesitate to contact Mr Postlethwaite who leads on Geography in our school.
