St Leonard’s school motto is “Love to Learn, Learn to Love”. Our aim is to provide each child with the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We seek to develop a sense of self respect, acceptable moral and social behaviour and the capability to live full lives, in our pupils. At the same time, we aim to develop a willingness to contribute to the welfare of others and give our pupils a chance to acquire a reasoned set of attitudes, values and beliefs including a respect for and an understanding of other people’s religions and moral values and ways of life as well as promoting investigation into Christianity.
Our pupils learn how to communicate effectively, accurately and imaginatively, to read, write and listen, understand, question, respond and report. They also acquire knowledge, skills and practical abilities that will become a firm foundation for future learning and a resource from which further development will draw meaning, by offering a variety of learning styles and situations including investigation, trial and experimentation.
