I have been so impressed with all the photos of our future reception children showing our school value of Responsibility. It is lovely to see you decorating plant pots, watering and looking after your sunflower seeds and picking up litter in your local area. Here are some photos of our responsible and caring children, we are already so proud of you!
It was so lovely to meet some of our families and Reception Class for September 2021 during my book deliveries! I really enjoyed delivering a book to each child and it was great to see that the children are just as excited about the school opening as I am. I hope your child enjoyed the story of Rainbow Fish, I cannot wait to fill our reading reef library with books and for our children to enjoy stories as a regular feature of their school day. I am enjoying seeing photos of your
child showing responsibility by helping their sunflower to grow, sunflowers should have all arrived the last week so please let us know if you have not received any.
All 72 modules, which make up our school, are now on site at Buckton Fields Primary School! The exterior work, including brickwork and cladding, is starting next week. We love watching our school building progress and can not wait to transform our brand new school into a fun, inspirational and exciting learning environment!
Some exciting updates from our builders – who have started working on the land for our school!
As the construction work continues on site, I wanted to share with you more exciting plans for our first ever cohort of Reception children in September. In line with the vision of sustainability and being a school with a commitment to protecting our local environment, we will be working closely with the local Farm Shop to launch Buckton Fields’ Farmers.
We will be having an allotment, gardening club, visits from farmers and lots of trips to the farm shop! We will be using our brand new Design and Technology room to learn how to cook healthy, delicious food. We cannot wait to work closely with the local community and get growing some fresh vegetables with our children.
Our builders are hard at work making space for the new school, lots of diggers are now on site.
Principal Update – January 2021
We have had an update this morning from our builders. Work has started on the clearing of the space for the school. Exciting news!
As the school is currently being manufactured offsite as a modular build, I will be updating you with the exciting plans we are making ready to open Buckton Fields Primary School in September!
Applications are now closed – but please see our Admissions page for further information.
We cannot wait to welcome our first ever cohort to Buckton Fields Primary school and one area of the school we are looking forward to opening is our Reading Reef.
The Reading Reef will be an underwater themed library area, where children can enjoy books with their friends and listen to stories read by their teachers. At Buckton Fields Primary School, it is essential that we instil a love for reading and we are so excited to share stories in the Reading Reef with our Reception Children.
