St. Leonard's CEP Academy

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it" Proverb 22:6


We take care to offer your child a gentle induction into Academy life. The transition from home or nursery to a full-time school is a massive step for you both and we seek to ease this transition by providing a rich curriculum and a team of staff who are sympathetic to the needs of pupils and their parents.

The children are sensitively led through new experiences and given plenty of time to get to know the many new people in their lives – adults and children. Games and activities are planned to help encourage communication skills and to model appropriate behaviour, allowing the children to settle quickly and happily into Academy life.


The curriculum we follow is available to view below.


Please note this is subject to change as we respond to the needs and interests of the children and the children are involved in planning their learning.

We follow a phonics scheme to teach the children to read.
