Our Christian Character

St Leonard's Lower School's strong distinctive Christian character stands proudly at the heart of all school life. This is because the school is a family, based on Christian values.


Our Christian ethos and aims are embedded in our practices, the children's behaviour towards each other and their learning, and the way in which our communities interact with each other.


We are a school growing in faith through the values that we teach.


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 Great Britian today.


Please see our Collective Worship and RE policies below.


The potential for all children to succeed is a core belief at st Leonard's. Each individual child's progress is valued and monitored closely to ensure that they achieve their full potential. Our inviting learning environments, and topics that inspire awe and wonder encouraging spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, are just some examples of the Christian provision of education that we offer to our children. 


"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."
