I am pleased that plans to open Buckton Field Primary School in September 2021 are well underway and all that remains is a public consultation, giving the local community the opportunity to voice their questions, support or concerns.
This consultation will take place virtually on Tuesday 23rd February at 7pm, and you can receive the link by contacting Catherine Guatrey: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you support the opening of the school, you can also indicate this by filling out this questionnaire: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/W37VK3Q
Buckton Field’s Primary school will provide a new, innovative approach to learning. Established by the Preston Hedge’s Academy Trust, the vision for the school is based upon sustainability and being an eco-friendly school, utilising the local area and making a positive difference to the community.
This vision will be supported by the Eco-Science curriculum, with a reading reef, jungle and rainforest themes area, and ‘Buckton Fields’ Farmers’, which will involve an allotment, gardening club and working with the local Farm Shop.
I believe it is vital to instil ideals about sustainability and protecting the environment in children from a young age. I look forward to seeing this school grow and flourish over the years!
