St. Leonard’s CE Primary School encourages everyone to ‘Enjoy Success’ by embedding our Christian values in hearts and minds, within a nurturing, safe and inclusive environment, equipping our children to become global citizens.
We at St. Leonard’s school believe that we are part of God’s family, following the example of Jesus Christ, and strive to put into action St. Paul’s teaching on the fruit of the Spirit –
“love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control”
Galatians 5. 22-23
Our vision and Christian values underpin everything we do as a school: our aims and ethos, policies, procedures, the design of our curriculum, how we treat one another, the decisions that we make and the school’s management and governance.
Recognising its historic foundation, St Leonard's Church of England Primary School will
preserve and develop its religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church
of England and in partnership with the church at parish and diocesan level.
The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality
within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the
meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it
offers its pupils.
As a church school, the school will strive to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural,
mental and physical development of ALL pupils. It will at the same time strive to prepare its
pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life by placing an
inherent and equal value on each person involved in the life of the school whether they are
child or adult.
