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.

Kingfishers trip to Tamworth Castle

This week Kingfishers visited Tamworth Castle as part of their History topic on Castles. After visiting the Great Hall they went to the Armoury where they got to look at the different weapons and tried on chainmail and helmets. They even sat on the Lord and Lady's thrones.


Their first workshop was helping the servants lay the table ready for the Lord and Lady.   They laid the table for dinner and found out lots of interesting facts, including what everything was made from. They even had to bow/curtesy when the Lady entered and couldn't sit down until she gave them permission.


After lunch they attended the Squire workshop.  Here they met Master Lincoln, the Squire in charge of training the young men to be Knights. They learnt how to dress in a full suit of body armour and then stood in line and practised handling the lances, striking high and low.
