‘Safe, respected and ready to step out into the world.’

Our rich and dynamic curriculum, offers all pupils an education that enables them to fully participate in all learning and social experiences, whether that is at school or opportunities in the wider community. It is underpinned by our school values of:

Empowerment

At Buckfastleigh, our curriculum is a knowledge-engaged curriculum. Knowledge is the main focus of our teaching and underpins and enables the application of skills. We place an emphasis on cross-curricular teaching in order to make the curriculum relevant and meaningful for pupils, and for putting knowledge into context.

We believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the notion that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching, we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed and ambitious choices about the important things in their lives. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy, successful and rewarding lives.
