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.


Science Fair 2024

Our intent for Science is to encourage children in asking their own questions, supporting their own inquisitive thoughts and providing them with the skills to find the answers, through Working Scientifically. We want the children to have the skills to investigate their own questions, linking what they have been taught previously. 

We build skills from the Early Years to Year 6, so the children become more confident as they progress through school.  The children are taught how to use equipment safely from the beginning of school, to support them in planning, conducting and evaluating their own investigations.

Our Science Lead is Mrs. Lowe. If you have any questions relating to Science at St Leonard's my contact details are:


In Science we have been working hard to develop our Working Scientifically within our lessons.  We use PEMROC to help the children plan their investigations.








Our children's opinions on Science

  • 'I think Science is really interesting!'
  • 'I think it is amazing because we look at lots of different things.'
  • 'My favourite part is when we do experiments.'
  • 'I like making predictions.'
  • 'I liked it when we did magnets - it was quite interesting.'

Our Science Priorities


We have highlighted the following priorities for Science this year.

  • To continue to develop the profile of Science across the school.
