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.

A busy December

It has been a very busy month in school with our Christingle service in Church, Robins and Kingfishers Nativity Baubles, Christmas Fayre, Christmas dinner and Christmas trips.


Robins have been getting into the Christmas spirit, performing their Nativity Baubles. They all did so well, getting on the stage and remembering where they needed to be. This week they have enjoyed their Christmas dinner, where the children had a surprise visit from Santa, who gave them all a present. They all loved seeing Santa at school! They also enjoyed their Christmas trip to Winter Wonderland. All of the children behaved brilliantly and enjoyed throwing a few snowballs! To finish off the week, they have had hot chocolate as well as doing lots of creative activities.


In English Kingfishers have been developing their understanding of using non-fiction texts and have produced a great piece of informational writing on the Great Fire of London. In Maths they have been focussing on problem solving and reasoning involving 2D and 3D shapes. They explored the significance of each part of a Christingle and then made their own which we lit during our lovely service at church. The highlight of these past few weeks has been our production, which the children thoroughly enjoyed! And to top it off they shared a fantastic morning with Robins at Winter Wonderland this week.


Owls have created films all about themselves. They practised performing their lines and filmed them this week. In maths they have been learning how to solve division calculations and have completed some Christmas symmetry. In RE they have been writing a diary entry based on the shepherd’s experience in the Christmas story. In English this week, they have written their own stories based on the Iron Man.  They also enjoyed their Christmas trip to the Pantomime.


Falcons have had another busy 2 weeks. Last week they finished their science unit on light and the children enjoyed doing different experiments. We have nearly finished our class text for this term and the children are looking forward to our new topic on Harry Potter. Falcons enjoyed their Christmas trip with Owls to the Pantomime.
