2018 - 2019 has been an incredibly busy and overall, successful year for Buckland St. Mary Primary School. Since the last newsletter, the children have had a variety of opportunities and experiences: a Year 3 Maths Quiz, Kilve residential, Transition Day and Volunteers Tea afternoon to name a few. As I watched the Year 6 children waite on the volunteers, I realised what role model pupils they are. Well done to all the staff at Buckland St. Mary and to all the volunteers for their efforts to ensure children leave Buckland as well rounded and independent children. Sports Day was a huge success. Thank you to everyone for coming along and supporting your children and to Miss Auton and the team for a wonderful afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed my first sports day with you all. To end this year, I’d like to thank everyone for making me so welcome. I’m very much looking forward to working with you all in the new academic year and wish you a wonderful summer holiday.

The term is well underway! Children at Buckland St. Mary School have made a fantastic start to the school year and are demonstrating our core values: Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Perseverance, Courage and Tolerance. Classes are working hard on their project of ‘Change’. They’ve been taking part in a variety of activities, learning about the human body and changes in the world around us . The teachers devised this ‘Gateway’ based on the ‘Intent’ that was explored last academic year. Parents, staff and children all contributed their thoughts on what should form the foundations of learning at Buckland School to help prepare the children for the next stage of their lives. We are also sharing and embedding our revised Christian Vision: ‘That they may have life, life in all its fullness.' John 10:10 At Buckland St. Mary 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. The Ethos and Welfare Committee, staff and children all contributed towards this vision. Please support your child/children to understand its importance. It informs everything we do at Buckland St. Mary C of E School. What a fantastic start to 2019! As you may know, our After School Club is currently running on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:10 pm - 5:30 pm. To date, staff have supervised this on an ad-hoc basis and any attempts at recruitment have been unsuccessful. This provision is a supportive service to parents and something we wish to continue. To this end, if any parents (who are ideally already volunteers at the school), are interested in being paid to cover After School Club, please contact me at the earliest opportunity.Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
