Welcome To

Buckfastleigh Primary School

We are very proud of Buckfastleigh Primary School and its place at the heart of the community. Our school is a vibrant and dynamic place to learn. We are proud to be part of a school where children and staff are inspired to learn, challenged to do their best and encouraged to succeed. We want all our children to 'Aim High, Live Life and Show Respect.'

Our vision is for our school to be a stimulating, safe and respectful learning environment, where all members of our community work in partnership to achieve the best for every child. We provide learning experiences that motivate children to believe they can succeed in all that they do, creating a culture where we enjoy challenges in our learning, knowing that we can always aim higher. This is promoted through high aspirations and independence. Well-structured lessons comprise of appropriate pace and challenge that are inclusive of all children, regardless of differences, to ensure that all learners achieve their full potential; we pride ourselves in making a difference. High self-esteem is one of the keys to success in life and we aim to ensure that our pupils leave us as caring, happy and confident young people.

We welcome visits and look forward to meeting you and your child.
