A Message from Mr Morton

What a year we have at Buckland St Mary Primary School. It seems like only yesterday that I was welcomed back into the Buckland family and into the Castle one too! I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with amazing teachers and delightful children. It doesn’t matter which school site I find myself on (often more than one in a day) I am always greeted with beaming smiles and welcoming words. It really does make my heart sing. We have had a rollercoaster of a year in terms of closures, illness and general ups and downs but you have all dug in and made each day worthwhile. I think we have all shown our true Somerset spirit! Thank you to you all. Buckland St Mary C of E Primary School is set for change. Year 6 you leave us to start your next adventures. We know that you will all make the right choices and make our world a better place for having each and everyone of you in it. Be amazing! I would like to take a moment to thank Mrs Bown, Miss Sullivan and Miss Auton for all of their hard work and commitment to our children over their time at Buckland. Mrs Bown has worked with us this year as a TA and has made a difference to our children’s lives. Miss Sullivan has worked at Buckland for 2 years and has led our EYFS with passion, enthusiasm and creativity. Thank you Miss Sullivan for everything you have accomplished with us. Finally, Miss Auton leaves us after 21 and 1⁄2 years of service to the school and to my calculations has been part of roughly 1,500 children’s and their families lives over her time with us. Miss Auton you are a Buckland institution and your shoes are impossible to fill. We thank you for everything that you have done for the school, its children and the wider community. You are amazing!Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
The Redstart Performing Arts Festival 2022 Posted on: 26/05/2022

The Redstart Performing Arts Festival 2022

The Redstart Performing Arts Festival 2022 The Redstart Learning Partnership Performing Arts Festival For the first time, all 10 of The Redstart Learning Partnership’s (TRLP) primary schools will be coming together to celebrate performing arts across the trust. The children from TRLPs 10 schools all based in Somerset and Devon will have two workshops one singing and one for dance with industry professionals Carolyn Tudor and Stuart Chaffer, as well as rehearse their own pieces to perform in a variety show on the professional theatre stage for their families in the afternoon. There will be approximately 170 children attending the day, all enjoying this wonderful opportunity.  All of the children involved in the event will be performing a song together at the end of the performance.  The song that has been chosen is this year’s Sing Up Day song and is called ‘Love as our Guide'.  It is a rousing, uplifting, and optimistic pop anthem, exploring themes of kindness and of being a person you can be proud of. In addition to this to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the TRLP have also arranged a special Jubilee Art Competition for the children.  The winners will be chosen by Suzanne Flack (CEO of TRLP), Ethne Staniland (Subject Leader of Art for TRLP) and Susan Browning (Somerset artist). The winning artists will have their entries displayed in the Brewhouse Theatre foyer for all to enjoy. Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
