Buckingham Park Primary School is a happy and healthy place to learn.
We are also an effective place to learn: our standards have risen year on year and, this year, well over 90% of our children attained Level 4 or more and 100% of pupils made at least expected progress.
Our recent Ofsted Inspection December 2013 stated,
Achievement is good and pupils across the school make good progress given their starting points. In 2013, pupils in Year 6 did exceptionally well in the national tests in their reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar.
We are a larger than average community school , with 367 pupils arranged into 13 classes.
We are very proud that our school is a safe, vibrant, purposeful place of learning where the head teacher knows the name of every single child.
Our spacious school, with its extensive grounds, is at the heart of our community and we work closely with families to help our children develop the essential skills for a happy and fulfilled life.
We work hard to cultivate and nurture attitudes of support, respect and care in all our activities and relationships and for all our children.
Equally important is learning. We set high standards in everything we do and strongly believe in the importance of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics.
At Buckingham Park, we believe that primary school education is an experience that all children should enjoy to the full. We therefore offer a broad and balanced curriculum and pride ourselves on the quality of care provided to all pupils. Helping children to develop into happy, responsible citizens, who are able to make a positive contribution to our world, is at the heart of our work. We actively listen to the voices of parents and children.
This website with its photographs, children’s work, quotes and news updates should give you a picture of life at Buckingham Park Primary School but do please come and see the school at work and discover how your child could thrive here.
Just a reminder that the last day of the Summer term is Wednesday 23rd July and the new term begins on Thursday 4th September.
Thank you to all the PTA members, parents, governors and children who organised and supported our wonderful fair on Friday - we have raised just over £2000 which is absolutely fantastic. Well done everyone - we are delighted.
