At BSM C of E Primary School everyone matters. We strive to be an inclusive community providing an outstanding education for all. Our lives are enriched through the teaching of Christian Values to grow as global citizens in an ever-changing world.


Our school is extremely passionate about enriching the lives of the children in our care; creating a stimulating and happy working environment for our children to achieve success. We have a dedicated and hard working staff determined to do their best for each and every child. We treat all children as individuals. We strive to value, respect, challenge, motivate and inspire each other. We also aim to develop our staff in their professional journey.  Buckland also has an on-site nursery.


Buckland St Mary Primary School is part of the The Redstart Learning Partnership (TRLP). TRLP is a Multi Academy Trust of primary schools in Somerset. The Partnership has one simple aim; to provide an outstanding education for every child.
