St Leonard's Lower School's strong distinctive Christian character stands proudly at the heart of all school life.
We are 'Growing and Learning together with God's love'.
We are an inclusive school and warmly welcome children, families and staff of all faiths and none.
Collective worship is an important part of our school day. It is a time where we come together to pray, reflect, give thanks, be still, celebrate, share and sing.
Our vicar visits school to lead worship each week, and we visit St Leonard's Church regularly.
We value Religious Education as a core subject in our school curriculum and whilst we place emphasis on knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith we also aim to develop our pupil's understanding of other faiths and beliefs represented in our local community today.
Please see our Collective Worship and RE policies below.
The potential for all children to grow and flourish is a core belief at St Leonard's. We recognise that every child is a unique individual within God’s creation, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Our school vision is based on the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13) and we believe that all pupils should be provided with the very best foundations ‘good soil’ to support them to learn more, to remember more and to live God’s love.
"The School has many outstanding features and Christian Values clearly underpin its ethos. It makes an excellent contribution to the spiritual, moral and social development of pupils."
