West Buckland COVID-19 updates

With the end of term approaching, we turn our attention to September and what we are expecting to be a full return to lessons.  For information on what we have achieved and what how we are planning for September, please click here.

As a BSA school we have signed up to their COVID-Safe Charter, available here.  In addition, and to endorse our commitment to ensuring the safety of our students and staff, we have created our own WBS Hygiene Charter.

For our new and returning international students, our Frequently Asked Questions document will provide useful information and reassurances. Please view it here.

Our days are action-packed in Nursery and Pre-Prep. Here’s a taster of some of the things we get up to in the Early Years classrooms.

Nursery children enjoyed an Ugly Bug Ball themed day. They came dressed up in some wonderful bug costumes and had a great day baking and decorating bug cakes; swimming; sponge printing bugs and a great session of dance with Ms Coates. They learned a dance themed to ‘The very hungry caterpillar’, moving their bodies in different ways to music to act the story out. We had a lot of fun with the class and as you can see, the children enjoyed themselves.


In Reception, we are practising our writing using flashcards and marker pens to write out what we can see and say. The children are making fantastic progress and their writing confidence is growing. Even when the activity was over they wanted to carry on.


Children in Year 2 have been working on their division skills, using lots of different objects to see how many ways then can divide the number 30 into equal groups. Not only did they practise their maths but they had to employ teamwork and diplomacy skills!
