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

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.


Science Fair 2023 - March 17th

Our intent for Science is to promote 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 and if you have any questions for Science, please contact her on


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.'
  • 'I like the green sheet at the end because I get to look back at my work.'
