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’. Catherine Young- Headteacher.

This week

Robins had their first forest schools session! It was amazing and they constructed the most beautiful village for the little people. They have been working hard this week on the creation story and all the things we have been given from God.  


Kingfishers have made their moving seaside picture for DT. They have moved onto addition in maths and have been using time conjunctions in English. They have enjoyed their football unit of work in PE and have been using small apparatus in Gymnastics. 


Owls have been practising their written methods for subtraction. In English they have been applying their skills to write a Celtic Round House leaflet. 


Kestrels and Falcons went on their trip to the space centre which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. They learned about the phases of the moon and much more.


Kestrels wrote lovely prayers for Mrs Ribchester - many of whom have benefited from her support. They did a fabulous job of tidying out the school planters. 


Falcons have been writing letters to local businesses asking them to support our volunteer day by donating paint and various equipment.
