Village Schools Partnership

Small Schools - Big Futures


From the Summer Term, 2022, The Village Schools Partnership replaces the former Flying Start Federation. This is because the Partnership has increased in size to include Woolsery Primary School. The Village Schools Partnership will bring the very best of rural, village school primary education to our three sites through better opportunities for our children, smart working, better use of resources and a shared vision. We look forward to sharing that journey with you!

Small Schools - Big Futures

Throughout the Summer Term, the online presence from the three schools, Buckland Brewer, Parkham and Woolsery Primary Schools, will come together under a new web domain. In the menatime, please be aware that this site may not reflect current approaches even though we are working hard to give you the most up to date information about our new organisation.

The Partnership provides excellent opportunities for teachers and other staff to develop their professional expertise which directly impacts on the quality of teaching and learning for the children. Staff are able to share their best practice within a professional learning community developing an exciting and purposeful curriculum for all our children.

All of our work and development is driven by making each of our schools exciting, vibrant, inclusive learning organisations which always put children first.
