St Budeaux Foundation Church of England (Aided) Junior School
St Budeaux Foundation is a friendly school with a family atmosphere and is one of the oldest schools in Plymouth - if not the oldest!
We are extremely proud to be a GOOD Church of England school. We work closely with other schools around the locality and other church schools to ensure that the children get the best education they can. We are proud to be a fully inclusive school and welcome all faiths and backgrounds.
As a Church of England school, we regularly carry out special events around religious education.
The children have many clubs and activities to take part in at the school. We encourage the children to be as active as possible in these clubs and for all children to attend at least one club. Please go to the club page to find out more. There are particular children chosen to become involved in PEP squad, which is in partnership with MAP. This extends the children's learning and builds their confidence. We also carry out swimming lessons in year 4 and 5. In addition to this, we have residential trips and/or day trips in both year 5 and year 6. Also the children who are involved with the Goblin car building and racing have a great time, this is supported by Babcock, which is connected to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mechanics).
We have numerous mufti days through the year, some of these being for different charities that the children have chosen to support, which is fed back to the managers of the school by the school council representatives. We are also very involved in the Archie project which supports a local dementia home. The charities are always incredibly humbled by the donations are explain that they will be used wisely.
We are lucky to be part of a busy RE subject leaders' hub and we work collaboratively with other church schools in and around Plymouth.
- Ofsted rating: Good See the report for the school
At St Budeaux Foundation School we aim to identify every child's needs as they arise and provide teaching and learning that will enable all individuals to achieve their full potential.
Where necessary, we work with a range of professionals such as Speech & Language Therapists or Educational Psychologists to ensure we are matching our provision to the needs of the child.
Support may be given in school by both the teacher and a teaching assistant and it is very important that we work with the family too.
