St Leonard's C E Primary School
St Leonard's Road, EX2 4NQ Exeter
01392 666570

St Leonard’s is a new primary school opening in September 2005 for 420 children aged 4+ to 11+ years. The maximum number of children it is planned to accept in any new year group is 60 pupils. It has been created through the combining of Central First and Middle schools. However St Leonard’s has its own distinctive ethos and values. St Leonard’s combines the best aspects of the two schools but also seeks to develop new and exciting approaches to meet the needs of the modern child.



We entered a small choir into the BBC ‘Search for a choir' online competition, in which school choirs are competing for the chance to perform live on the final show of Any Dream Will Do and will be invited to appear in the West End for a special Children In Need performance of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor® Dreamcoat.

Raging Rivers- by Luke

The River of Life- by Leo

Raging rivers start at source
Raging rivers go of of course
Raging rivers go past waterfalls
Raging rivers munch cliffs away
Raging rivers won’t go away.

It just starts in a tiny channel
Absorbing water like a flannel
Now in come the tributaries
Coming as fast as swarming bees

It gets wider and deeper as it goes
Meandering lots as it flows
Then the river starts to get fast
Getting more and more vast

Then comes the waterfall
The leap of faith for almost all
Especially for salmon and trout
They will make it without a doubt

Then it goes into the estuaries
Leading out to all the seas.

My River Poem - by Flora

Soft blue serpents drifting along, bumping into rocks, in huge blue flocks
Hard blue dragons crashing down a fall, working their way down

Turning round and round galloping inland,
Soft white sea horses hit the ground.
Sun is hot nearly melt the lot, but they trot back into start again.

Class organisation

There are two classes for each school year group. Because of the transition arrangements from the Central Schools to St Leonard’s in the first two years of the school there will be three classes for the oldest year groups as these children progress through the school. Class sizes are around 30 per class. Classes are principally taught by their own class teacher for all subjects, but there will be some lessons where the school is able to arrange tuition by a specialist teacher particularly for the older children.

Children follow the same curriculum in all classes in the same year group. The teachers collaborate in the planning. An overview of what is taught is maintained by the Key Stage Co-ordinator and the Headteacher.

The foundation stage has its own dedicated area and play space. The Foundation children have a very special place in the school and we have a separate pack of information about the Foundation Stage.

Parents of Foundation and Key Stage 1 children can deliver and collect their children from the outside doors of their classroom. Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to make their own way to class and are released from the classroom by the teacher at the end of the day. Parents may wait for children on the front playground.

It is necessary for every school to produce a prospectus for parents and prospective parents. The prospectus must be produced during the school year before the admissions year.

Parents and School Communication

The school wishes to make communication with parents easy and as immediate as possible. To this end teachers will always make themselves available at the end of the day for 10 minutes to talk to parents. It is sometimes harder to discuss matters with parents before school during setting up at that time. However, particularly with the youngest children we recognise that parents often need to pass on information or raise questions as they enter the classroom. As children develop through the school we would encourage a greater sense of independence.

There are regular newsletters which are sent home by pupil post. These contain a description of the main features of the lessons for the term and general information including ways in which parents can help. There are parent/teacher evenings in the autumn and spring terms and a celebration open evening in the summer term. A written annual report for each child is sent home.

The school looks to be responsive to parents’ needs and will therefore arrange a variety of activities to meet needs as they arrive. These might include such matters as children’s language development, drugs or sex and relationship education and any issue related to education and child development.

The school is always delighted to receive the support of parent or community volunteers. If you have skills and or time you wish to offer please initially contact your class teacher and we will look to involve you in a mutually convenient way.
