Growing In Faith and Learning
According to the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Code of Practice (2015), a child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if he or she:
• has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age, or
• has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.
At St. Leonard’s C of E (A) Primary School we are proud to provide a safe, stimulating and inclusive learning environment where every member of our community is valued and respected. Our broad, balanced, creative curriculum and enrichment activities provide opportunities for everyone to achieve and succeed. We celebrate our achievements, gifts and cultural diversity, irrespective of individual differences within the protected categories of the Equality Act of 2010. Together we take pride in making a positive contribution to our school and the wider community.
At St. Leonard’s children should acquire:
· a sense of self-respect
· personal confidence
· the capability to live as independent, self-motivated adults
· the ability to function as contributing members of co-operative groups.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13)
Due to COVID-19, things have been very different for children both in school and at home. Our pupil’s well-being and self-esteem are of paramount importance to us and we are here to offer any support that we can. I have added some different useful resources on to this page should your child have to self isolate or need any emotional support. If there is any other support that you feel we can offer, please do not hesitate to contact me or Mrs Hateley and we'd be more than happy to help.
