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.

This week

It has been a very busy week in school with lots going on.  Thank you to everyone who attended our KS2 carol service in church on Tuesday and our KS1 nativity performances on Wednesday. The children did an amazing job and looked great in their costumes.


As part of Kestrels Stone Age to Iron Age topic the children visited Sarehole Mill on Wednesday. They had a great day finding out lots of interesting facts and enjoyed creating their own artwork.  Please take a look at the Gallery page for photos.


We took the choir to M & S at Ventura on Thursday morning where they entertained the shoppers with a selection of carols and Christmas songs.  Thank you to all of the children that took part and also to the parents and grand parents that came along to show their support.


The hall was very busy on Thursday when all of the children sat together for their Christmas dinner. They all looked great wearing the hats they'd made earlier in the week.  Photos will be added to the gallery soon.


Today was Christmas Maths Day for all of the classes.  The children enjoyed a variety of Christmas themed activities, from creating parabolic curves and 3D crackers, to plotting coordinates, cracking codes, helping Santa out of a maze and using their estimation and prediction skills.


We have also held celebration assemblies for both Robins and Kingfishers class.  Well done to everyone who received a certificate.
