Buckfastleigh is a small town on the edge of Dartmoor and we are fortunate to be in a town with many community assets.  We make use of the town swimming pool, Victoria Park and Duckspond playing fields.  We also use the local resources like the church, the library, the caves and the wonderful environment of Dartmoor, to support and enhance our learning.  We have links with the community police, the local churches, local businesses, the fire service, the town council, and many sporting organisations.  

We also maintain close links with other schools in the south Dartmoor area and with our secondary feeder school, South Dartmoor Community College.

In April 2011 we became one of the founder members of the South Dartmoor Academy Trust along which also includes Widecombe, Ashburton, Ilsington and Moretonhampstead Primary Schools and South Dartmoor Community College. The schools work closely together to plan the best education for all children and to ensure that transition at Year Six is a positive experience.
