We are a caring, village school which promotes Christian values, where each child receives a high standard of education that is broad, challenging, exciting and encourages creative thinking.
We encourage every learner to be the best they can be, to reflect and plan the next steps in their learning journey, demonstrating a respect towards others and contributing to the communities of which they are a part.
Our vision at Buckland Cof E Primary School is “To be Outstanding”.
To be an outstanding school for our children.

Buckland C of E Primary School take very seriously their responsibilities towards safeguarding pupils, please report any concerns to Louise Warren, Designated Safeguarding Lead. All adults working in any capacity in our school have enhanced DBS checks in place.
Buckland is a small village school that values standards and achievement. We believe that each child is an individual and we seek to provide personalised academic, emotional, social and spiritual support for each one. We want our children to be spirited individuals who embrace challenge, think creatively, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be. We encourage each of our learners to take time to actively contribute to our community and to support others.
We provide a broad and stimulating curriculum, full of opportunities to excite and motivate our learners. This is complemented by a rich menu of extra-curricular activities which encourage children to carry on enjoying learning outside of the school day. We foster relationships built on mutual respect and care for each other. We are extremely proud of all that goes on here. When we do have concerns they are dealt with quickly and openly. As our website demonstrates, the children at Buckland are supported in their learning by dedicated staff, governors and parents. You are most welcome to visit and see what a special place Buckland School is.
