Headteacher’s Welcome

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.

Best Wishes

Louise Warren
