Butleigh Church of England Primary School is a beautiful village school set in stunning grounds in the Somerset countryside. The school has an enviable reputation for an inspiring and creative curriculum as well as being a caring and friendly primary school. We ensure our children have every opportunity to attain the highest possible standards in their work and personal development during their time with us.
We pride ourselves in our strong community links to St. Leonards Church and the wider community of Butleigh as well as St. Peter’s in Kenya. Our inclusive Christian ethos creates an environment built upon our core values of kindness, friendship, trust and honesty. It is this positive learning environment which enables our children to develop and grow becoming life-long learners, having high aspirations in both their academic and personal lives.
We have a lovely term “Children helping children” which encapsulates how our children are inspired to help others. Over recent years independently designing, organising and leading many successful projects which have provided funds for our friends at St. Peter’s in Kenya for food, schooling, buildings and much more.
There is a wonderfully supportive parent’s group (Friends of Butleigh School – F.B.S) which provides opportunities and enrichment for our children that enhance our curriculum and school environment. It is a family friendly, welcoming group which is open to all parents/guardians of Butleigh pupils and one which celebrates those skills and talents each member brings.
I invite you to browse through our website and prospectus to familiarise yourselves with our school a little better. If you would like any of our information in printed form, just let us know – we’ll be happy to provide it for you.
We warmly encourage visits to our lovely little school, and we invite you to come and visit us when the children are working, so that you can see first-hand the rich learning environment that our staff work so hard to create.
