For their snack this morning, nursery class enjoyed some lettuce they they have grown themselves in the garden!


The eco club members had a great time at the eco conference. They participated in lots of activities and learnt lots about the importance of pollinators. Did you know that hummingbirds play a vital role in the pollination of many different species of plant life?!

KS2 have really enjoyed thinking about the wonderful community we have in Buntingford. The children have used their Computing skills to create a summary of their work.


Really proud of our school choir performing, ‘This is Me,’ at our Easter assembly.


We have been so lucky to have had a healthy foods workshop run by Aspens. We learnt about tasty, healthy snacks and all the good they do for our bodies. We made a fruit and vegetable smoothly, which was delicious, healthy and sweet! We are allowed sweet treats, just not too many!


We have been learning about the importance of our wonderful community in Buntingford in our PSHE lessons recently. Year 3 and 4 have decided to get creative to make some Easter cards and gifts for our friends Layston Grove Care Home

Vision, Ethos & Values


At Buntingford First School our curriculum and educational offer is built upon the strapline: 'Education for a Changing World.' We provide a curriculum and environment that is designed to prepare our pupils for their futures.  Our curriculum has been designed with our children at the forefront of our mind with 4 key golden threads that run through, our 4Cs: Communication, Culture, Conservation and Conflict, details of which can be found on our curriculum page Curriculum Overview - Buntingford First School 

We are part of a diverse community of schools whose vision is to work collaboratively together to provide the young people in our care with the knowledge, skills and qualities they need to make a difference in the world. We want all our pupils and staff to feel included, valued and supported, so that they are able to achieve more than they ever believed possible. Our schools will be schools of choice in their local areas, the wellbeing of our staff will be protected and our pupils will become scholars who are able to meet the challenges of the changing world – whatever those may be.


The shared values of the Scholars’ Education Trust family are summed up in our ACE:

  • Achievement in academic, artistic, sporting, cultural and other forms with a focus on teaching and learning.
  • Care for students, staff and others beyond the school community.
  • Excellence in standards, manners, honesty, personal integrity and uniform.

The ACE underpins everything that we do and provides a secure basis for all we strive to accomplish.



  • Develop school communities where staff, students and families are committed to SET’s educational vision
  • Provide a common sense of educational purpose with a focus on outstanding teaching and learning
  • Foster a culture of positive challenge and continual school improvement
  • Offer an excellent educational experience so that every student feels included and valued in order to fulfil their potential
  • Encourage a rich and dynamic range of learning opportunities for all pupils, both inside and outside the classroom
  • Work in genuine partnership to strengthen schools and their communities

  • Develop collaborative working practices to provide economies of scale and shared use of resources to benefit all

There is so much more that marks out the SET community as a place in which each individual can receive the support and challenge they need to help them thrive, and a website can only give you a glimpse. We are all immensely proud of the work we do here so if you like what you see in the following pages and would like to learn more, please do visit us and experience the SET ACE for yourself.
