Langford Budville Church of England Primary School

Located in the lovely village of Langford Budville this small, caring, primary school provides good quality education to the residents of the village and we welcome many children from the nearby town of Wellington. The school has two mixed aged classes that are well taught by experienced teachers and learning support assistants.

‘It is our vision to create and maintain, in partnership with parents and carers, a caring, happy community in which Christian Values are upheld.’


At Langford the curriculum is designed so that the teaching staff are setting high expectations to give every learner the confidence they need to succeed. We have four ‘Curriculum Drivers’ : Emotional Awareness, Spirituality, The Arts and Possibilities which give us a focus to the work  which is based on what the children already know and build on that. There will be structure and pace so that it is challenging and enjoyable. The children will be encouraged to become active partners in their learning. Throughout all of this the children will develop their learning skills and personal qualities.


An important aspect of our learning is the use of the outdoor spaces, we take the children out of the classroom to visit the local area as we believe this enhances their work. The children have many different experiences which include local walks, visits to places of interest and residential camps. Recently the children have been to Caerleon, a Roman Settlement in Wales, Montacute House in Somerset, Knightshayes House in Devon and the City Museum in Exeter.


The school is a happy, thriving community which has been judged by OFSTED to be Good with some Outstanding features – January 2014. In addition to the learning experiences the children have many additional opportunities during their time with us and we have a Parent organisation known as ‘FLBSA’ which supports the school and welcomes new families. We know your child would be happy and develop as individuals with us and if you wish to know more please follow the link to our website:
