A Personal Welcome
On behalf of the Children, Staff and Governors, I take great pleasure in welcoming you to Buckingham Park Church of England Primary School. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the quality education we strive to deliver.
Our school is a large primary, with around 450 pupils set in spacious grounds in the centre of the Buckingham Park development which we serve as a community school. Our School includes an onsite Nursery, ensuring effective transition for our youngest children.
Our school vision, which you will see throughout the website, ‘Excellence, through God who strengthens us’, indicates our desire to be a school that pursues excellence in everything that we do. We want to focus our minds and our energy on everything which is true, right, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. As a school based on Christian values, we trust that God will help and strengthen us as we strive to become, and remain, outstanding.
We aim to provide the highest quality all round education, for each and every child, in partnership with parents, and within the context of our Christian community.
Being the Headteacher of Buckingham Park Primary School gives me great pleasure. Having been the Deputy Headteacher here previously, I am fully committed to the community of which we are a part and strive to ensure that the school serves our local children and their families well. We aim to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment for our whole school community. Our community, and the links between your child’s home and school is incredibly important to us - working together, we can help your child to develop the skills, attitudes and confidence that is so important for their development.
While it is my priority that the education your child receives here us will enable them to achieve their best and learn the key skills they need when growing up, it is also part of my vision that all our children enjoy positive experiences; that they are aware of the seemingly endless possibilities that await them and that they are nurtured in order to develop a confidence to embrace whatever challenges come their way.
Underpinning this, is my relentless commitment to ensuring that the children of Buckingham Park live the values we hold so dear – values based upon our Christian identity, but that enable children to be positive, enthusiastic and well-rounded members of their communities and to face the challenges of modern life, no matter their faith. You will find more information about these values throughout our website.
All of my staff share this vision and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. They work tirelessly to provide a varied and engaging curriculum and a positive school experience. We are very proud of everything we do here, so if you are thinking of applying for a school place or a staff position, or you would simply like to know more, we will be delighted to welcome you to visit.
We hope our website will answer many of your questions but should you have further queries, please telephone, email or visit the school.
