A Message from Helen Woodhams

It’s always good at the end of a term to reflect on all the great things that have taken place and that is certainly the case here at Buckland St Mary CofE Primary School. This week was our Easter Service and it was lovely to see so many parents, grandparents and members of the community supporting the event. I thought the children’s performances were superb as they told the story of Holy Week and sang so beautifully. Many thanks to the teachers and Reverend Jim for rehearsing the children so well. We are also looking to our final celebration assembly today which we will also be holding in the church. This will include a special diocese tradition- an affirmation of my position as Head of School and we will be joined by members of the church community and Simon Billington, the Chair of our LAB. This term, we have also had many successes in public speaking, sports events and singing at the Chard Area Concert. The children continue to enjoy their forest school days; where we see children thrive, developing their leadership and team working skills. FOBs have also been busy organising numerous events and raising lots of money which makes such a difference to our school. We are really looking forward to transforming our library. It really is an exciting time here at Buckland and it’s fantastic to see new families are choosing to join the school throughout the year. Spring is often a time for new beginnings and some of our staff have decided to pursue their dreams as drama coaches, pilates instructors and church accompanists. We wish Brenda, Frances and Lucy well in their chosen careers. We look forward to welcoming Mrs Gemma Evans and Mrs Helen Brumpton to our school. They bring with them both enthusiasm and experience, and along with Mrs Cutts who started this week, they will be a very welcome addition to our team. Looking forward to next term I will be holding another ‘tea and chat’ event. Please do come along and meet with both myself and other parents as we discuss plans for the future of our school. In particular, I will be sharing with you how we are responding to our recent OFSTED visit and ensuring that the children receive the best education. In the meantime, may I wish everyone a lovely Easter and hope you all have some special time with your families. Helen Woodhams, Head of School  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

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  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
