September Starters 2020

Welcome to St Leonard's!

Thank you for choosing St Leonard's as the place for your child to grow and blossom through their primary school years.

During these unprecedented times it is difficult to know how and when we will be able to induct our September starters. We will continue to monitor the current health situation over the coming weeks and months and work together to ensure the best approach to starting school.

We have created this page as a 'go to' point where we hope you will find resources, advice and further information about starting school and the transition from pre-school settings.

Thank you for taking the time to view our web page. If you have any questions regarding starting school over the coming weeks, please do not hesitate to contact school on 01254 247156 or either by email at or


Bringing our school to you!

Whilst our new September starters cannot come into school to visit, we thought we would bring our school to you at home.

Please have a look at the photographs below. They show you how our setting looks. We do make changes throughout the year that reflect the children's interests and next stages of development but these are a good starting point from which to share and talk to your child about their new school and where they will spend their time during their first year.

This our welcome area. This part of the classroom is just by the door. Here it is set up as a jungle world with lots of exciting books to read. We change this area from time to time and enjoy using our imagination and finding out about people and places all over our precious world.

This is our worship area. Father Freddie and Puddles the cat along with Cannon Riley live here. We find out all about God's big story, say prayers and retell Bible stories with story spoons and our wooden Noah's ark.

This is part of our creative space - we like to call it our creation station! Here we love to use lots of materials with scissors, glue and pens to make lots of different things. What's great about this space is that there's lots of choice and we can use our own ideas to make brilliant inventions.

This is where we hang our coats at school. You will also notice our slippers too! We like to wear slippers at school as this helps our wellbeing and makes us feel comfortable. We can swap our shoes and slippers when we like during each day. Even the teachers have slippers at St Leonard's!

This is our construction space. It has natural pieces to build with alongside favourites such as Lego and Kid K'Nex. We also have lots of block play and when we put all these things together we can make some amazing builds.

We love to read at school! We do so much reading and this is our reading corner. We like to place books all around our setting and change our space as and when we want to. We have so many books - story books, finding out book and poetry books and books we can read by ourselves. It's a really cosy and comfy place to be.
