Farewell Mrs Palmer!

Here are a few photographs from Mrs Palmer’s special presentations from the children.  Everyone had fun preparing something special for her last day.  We had performance poems, role plays, an alliterative a-z, raps and much more!  Mrs Palmer enjoyed it all and she even earned ‘Palmer Points’ from the primary 7 children.

Buckstone Primary



Buckstone Says NO to Bullying

A reminder that our anti-bullying wristbands will be on sale from Monday 7 March 2016 at 50p each.  They are purple and bear the slogan: Buckstone says no to bullying.  They are a great way to show support for our anti-bullying approach.

Buckstone Kindness Award

We have introduced a new Kindness Award at Buckstone Primary.  The idea is that children and adults nominate children who they think deserve the award because they have been especially kind in a specific situation/s.  The nominations are made in the school office and the successful nominee is presented with the award at assembly.  The award recipient takes home a certificate and has their name engraved on the kindness trophy.  Ruby F is the first child to receive the award in recognition of kindness.  Congratulations to Ruby it is so important to be kind to others.
