Welcome to St. Leonard's C.E. Primary School
COVID-19 IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS
School Closure – A Message from Mrs Ferriday and Staff
A big thank you to all of you for your support over the past week. We have had to close the school as you know. We hope that you all stay safe at home and are able to continue to access the work on our Online Learning Platform – Class Dojo. Let us know via email if you have any difficulties.
Thank you to everyone for thinking carefully about childcare needs. We only have a few exceptions and have been able to successfully manage this. Our preference would be that everyone stays home and stays safe, but we appreciate the tireless work of our Key Workers and will do all we can to support them.
We hope to see you all again before the end of the Summer term, but uncertainty surrounds this.
We are sad for all of our children, but particularly our Year 6 pupils. They have been a real credit to their families and have worked so very hard. We said a ‘sort of’ goodbye on Friday and wished them well at Secondary School. We will miss them all but we are still hoping to see them in July maybe. Good luck to all of you.
Keep safe and well.
A little video message from Staff at St Leonard's, we hope you are all safe!

NSPCC Number Day!
Everyone here at St Leonards had an excellent day participating in number day on Friday 7th February. Having counted up the money, we raised £316.32 for the NSPCC.
Year 1 and 2 had a visit from our local Community Service Officer for a Strange Danger Safety Talk.
Chinese New Year
To celebrate Chinese New Year, 3/4AR spent the afternoon learning about Chinese culture, celebrations and values. We learnt about the different animals celebrated each year and made Chinese dragons. We hand-delivered one of these dragons to each class in school, the office and Mrs Ferriday as a symbol of kindness, strength and for good luck to the year ahead.
Christmas Events 2019
Our school choir have been very busy this year with a series of events.
We took part in the light switch on in Bridgnorth on 22nd of November the school’s carol service at St Marys Church on December 3rd, the craft fayre on December 13th and finally a visit to Talbot Court on 19th December to sing to a very appreciative audience. Thank you to all members of the choir for your hard work and to parents/carers for bringing your children to these events.
On 19th December our Nursery children and School choir went to visit the residents of Talbot Court. They sang Christmas carols and a selection of songs from or nativity to a very welcoming and appreciative audience.
On December 12th, a group of children from years 5&6 took part in the Bridgnorth area urban biathlon. The children had to complete a 1000m mud run followed by 100m swim at the leisure centre. Everyone had excellent fun!
St Leonard's Mock Election
As part of our continued work on our British values, today we held a mock election for our pupils across the whole school. After reading child-friendly party manifestos and learning about what an election is and why it is important to our democracy, everyone had the opportunity to vote for their party of choice. Pupils from 3/4AR ran the polling station to administer the vote. The votes are in and a team of children will count the votes ready to be announce the winner in assembly. There were some fantastic political debates taking place around school; it’s great to see our children taking an interest in local and national politics. It seems we have some future MPs amongst us!
Nursery Christmas Production!
Coming soon- The 3/4AR Production of Bah Humbug!
Aldi's Kit For School!
Well done to the entire St Leonard's community for working together to collect the Aldi KIT FOR SCHOOLS stickers. We have collected over 700 stickers to complete 2 entry forms to be sent off this week. As well as a free sports kit for our school, each entry will give us a chance of winning £20,000 to use towards improving school sports equipment. Perhaps an all-weather running track? Or an AstroTurf pitch? Fingers crossed we win! Thank you to everyone for your effort and commitment! Go team St Leonard's!
Macmillan Coffee Morning
We would like to thank everyone who baked cakes, brought in cakes and donated to the Macmillan Coffee morning on the 27th September 2019. It was delightful to see so many people involved in this event for such a great cause and helping us raise £250.
