A Message from Mr Nation

Last week was Science Week and what a week it was! The staff went above and beyond to ensure the children had a fun and engaging time. A special thank you to Mrs Auton for her efforts - Mrs Auton put on quite a show! Mrs Tomasik has very kindly organised for an author to visit Beech Class on Friday the 29th. Ally Kennen (author of The Everything Machine, Sparks, My Great Viking Adventure and Spooks) will be hosting a writing workshop for upper KS2 children. In addition, she will be signing books on the day and there will be an opportunity to purchase her books at a discounted price of £5. On Saturday 8th March, Oscar and Ethan took part in the 2K Junior Grizzly. Emily, Jonathon and Izzie ran in the Grizzly Fun Run. All the children did incredibly well on a tricky route that includes running across the pebbles on the beach! Louis, now in Y7, came 1st in his age group and 7th overall in the 4K run! Well done to all of our runners! Enya and Oscar starred at the Holyrood Cross Country representing the school. They did us proud! Thank you to parents for transporting the children and for their support. We’re keen to set up additional  music sessions for the children. If your child/chldren would like drumming lessons, please get in touch. We need approximately 10 children to make this viable. I know Buckland St. Mary is fortunate to have the support of parents and the local community. To this end, if there are any volunteers who would like to assist in the nursery over the next two weeks, please get in touch with me via the school office. Finally, I’d like to remind everyone that class registers are taken at 8:55 am so the school day can start at 9:00 am prompt. Please ensure your child/children are in school on time to minimise any disruption to the start of the day. Thank you in advance for your support with this.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

A Message from Chris Hunt

Thank you to everyone for your support during my short time as Head of School at Buckland St Mary C. of E. Primary School. It has been a privilege to work with this wonderful community with the school at its very heart. The children are lucky to be supported by such a hard-working dedicated staff and I thank them all for their warm welcome, kindness and sense of humour.  I have also particularly appreciated the support of the fantastic FoBS team; their fundraising abilities and enthusiasm to help the school are phenomenal!  I am also extremely grateful to the Ethos and Welfare Committee, who have been key in further strengthening the links with the Church and meeting regularly to take part in productive discussions to support further improvements. I have loved getting to know all the Buckland children and I would like to thank the enthusiastic Ambassadors and Play Leaders for all their help.  I look forward to hearing of all your achievements and all the exciting events that will be taking place over the coming months. I was delighted to receive a letter this week from the Department for Education, congratulating the staff and pupils on the very high standard of achievement demonstrated in the writing Key Stage 2 assessments last year.  Well done everyone! Mr Nation enjoyed visiting the school this week and meeting all the children and many parents.  I wish him all the very best as he takes on the leadership of Buckland St Mary and I know that the school will continue to go from strength to strength. Finally thankyou  to everyone for your kind words, wishes and gifts;  I was very touched by Wednesday’s Collective Worship.  I repeat, it has been a pleasure to be here.  I wish you all every success and happiness for the future.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
