About Padiham St Leonard's Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School

Our Why
Each of our children is a precious and unique individual, with God given talents and abilities, created to fulfil a special role in God’s intricate plan for the world.
‘“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.’ Jeremiah 29:11

Our Vision
Our vision at St Leonard’s is to provide a nurturing, Christian environment where pupils develop a passion for learning about the world around them in order for them to become vibrant learners who use their abilities, knowledge and values to grow into faithful stewards of God’s Creation.
We aim to provide learning and experiences to enable pupils to develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, morally and physically. Our vision is that they develop a depth of understanding which is deep rooted and as such provide a ‘good soil’ so pupils go on to produce a bountiful crop.
‘Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop – a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.’ Matthew 13:8

We want pupils who will produce FRUITS:
• Faith - develop courage, resilience and patience, through their own personal faith in God, so they can retain hope and joy even during hard experiences. (John 1:12)
• Relationships - flourish through strong relationships with themselves, each other, creation and God. (Luke 10:27)
• Uniqueness - have the self-confidence to understand their uniqueness and God-given purpose to become the person God created them to be. (Matthew 10:30)
• Intellect – develop a keen intellect and use this talent and ability wisely to protect and enhance themselves, their communities and the environment. (Proverbs 3:13)
• Treat themselves and others with dignity and respect maintaining a healthy body and thriving community. (1 Peter 2:17)
• Salvation – have a recognition that we need to seek forgiveness through Jesus to become friends with God. (Ephesians 2: 8-9)

Our Mission
Nurturing hearts, minds and bodies through Christ.
