'Growing in Faith and Learning' 'Life in all it's fullness' John 10:10

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.

Religious Education

 

Religious Education Statement of Intent


Religious Education is taught using the Diocese of Lichfield’s Guidance following the ‘Understanding Christianity’ scheme. It is our intent that Religious Education promotes the Christian concept of the Trinity to engage and inform, equipping our children with the knowledge and skills to ask and seek answers to challenging questions. We provide an irresistible curriculum that not only develops our children’s understanding of their own faith and values, but also encourages them to flourish as individuals.  This enables them to make sense of religion and to be able to reflect on their own views. We provide our children with opportunities to learn about world religions and views in local, national and global contexts, to discover, explore and consider different answers to these questions. As a result, they will become independent, empathetic and responsible members of society who understand and explore big questions about life.  They will be encouraged to find out what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live, enabling them to develop their ideas, values and identities whilst also embracing our vision of how to live as Christians, with a sense of Hope, Community, Dignity and Wisdom.  

The lead teacher for Religious Education is Mrs Hunt.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me through the school office on 01827 213995 or email l.hunt@st-leonards-wigginton.staffs.sch.uk

We are getting better at using a Bible to locate scripture.

Mr Singh's visit: He explained his life as a police officer, father, husband and Sikh. He told us lots of jokes and we hope he will return to see us very soon!

She owns several prayer mats.
