Welcome to Bussage Primary School PTA

Bussage School Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is an essential and active part of our school community.  All parents and teachers are automatically members and we depend on the entire community to help us support our school.

Please have a think about anything you could offer – time, contacts, knowledge, supplies, ideas or just support and enthusiasm – you don’t have to commit long term or come to meetings, and it is also a fun way to meet other parents.

This page aims to conveniently keep everyone up to date with the PTA and its activities and we also use our Facebook page actively as a virtual community for updates, news and requests.  Don’t forget to like or follow us using any of the social media links on the right of the home page to keep updated that way too.

Please get in touch if you can help, by email [email protected], popping into the school office or find one of us in the playground. We’d love to hear from you! Scroll down to meet the team…

Don’t be shy! 

Your PTA Co-Chair – Naomi Bailey









A bit about me…

My husband and I moved ‘up on the hill’ 5 years ago having spent some time living and working in Australia and New Zealand. We now have two ‘spirited’ girls dashing in and around the school grounds, doing our best to beat the school bell!

As a new Mum at the school I thought joining the PTA would be a great way to get to know more of the parents and learn about school life in general. I’m currently working part time to fit around staying at home with the girls, but before my official ‘retirement’ I was working full time as a Primary school teacher – so being back on school grounds is nicely comforting!

Your PTA Co-Chair – Sarah Schmidt









A bit about me…

My husband and I are originally from Zimbabwe and have now lived in the UK for 16 years. We lived in Reading and in Wales, before falling in love with the Cotswolds and moving to Bussage nearly two years with our two children. I’m currently a stay at home mum after working in retail management for 14 years.

As a family we love travelling and exploring new places, so we try to get out and about as much as possible. I can normally be seen, and heard, calling and chasing after my son once I’ve dropped off my daughter at school! (I don’t think he will have any problem settling into school when he starts!)

I’m really looking forward to my new role as co-chair, and getting to know both the school and other parents better.
