A Message from Helen Woodhams
Driving to Buckland this morning reminded me that Spring is definitely on its way as I passed hedgerows of daffodils . It’s definitely a time of planning for the future.
The 1st of March, World Book Day, will soon be here- one of my favourite events of the school year! Not only is it the opportunity to dress up, but more importantly it is the chance to simply enjoy books and stories in lots of different ways.
I have also met today with Rev Jim Fallon and we have planned two special services for the end of term: Firstly, the traditional Easter Service which will take place on the 22nd March at 2pm. Secondly an end of term Celebration Service (to replace our normal Celebration Assembly at school) will take place the following day, 23rd February at 2.15pm in Church.
Finally a thank you to FOBS for your continued support. I know all the teachers and pupils really appreciate all the work that is put in and the money you raise. This morning I had a very fruitful meeting with Liz discussing plans for the future, looking at library designs and discussing how we might make the most effective use of all the fundraising that takes place.
Finally, as you know Ofsted visited us recently and we were very proud to be able to show all the work that has been going on at Buckland St Mary. We are currently waiting for the final report and I will shortly write to inform you when it is published on our Website.
Helen Woodhams, Head of School
