Class 6 performed magnificently on Tuesday 17th July. Have a look at the Y6 Blog for more photographs.
At the end of a very busy SATs week, Year 6 voted for the fundraising activity they would like to do to raise money for this year’s Cathedral Leavers’ Service charity – ‘Seriously Awkward’. The children chose to spend the day in their pyjamas and raised £40 which will be donated when we attend our service at the cathedral in June.
Before meeting with Mr Ferguson, David Drew MP met with the fantastic leaders of our School Parliament. Later during his visit, he held a questions and answers slot with the Year 5 and 6 ministry members. (See the School Parliament tab for more photographs)

We have a vacancy for a Clerk to Governors/Committee Clerk. Please contact the office on 01453 883205 for more details. Applications must be on the GCC application form.
On Sunday 22nd April, Mrs Trim (Hospice UK) & Mrs Hale (MacMillan Cancer) will be running the London Marathon for these fantastic charities.
Mrs Hale was lucky enough to get a ballot place, however Mrs Trim has a charity place and is therefore fundraising! If you would like to make a donation please visit her JustGiving page here. We will also have donation boxes in the office for both charities if you wish to give in this way.
We wish them all the best in the last few weeks of their training and good luck for the race!
Many thanks for all your support.
During half term, Mrs Barwell, Mrs Hale and I went out to Kenya to visit Shamanei Primary School who we have been linked with since 2015.
We taught a number of lessons including Wake and Shake, Parachute Games and sessions based around Critical Thinking. Both schools are now committing to a three year project looking at:
- – Digital Literacy
- – Citizenship
- – Critical Thinking
We are looking forward to maintaining this highly successful partnership.

In 2017 a lot of work was carried out by governors, staff and parents, to update our old Bussage Primary School Vision into our new Ethos, Vision and Values and we would like to thank all of those involved for their time and commitment to this.
Going forward the Head, staff and children will be working on some displays to help present our new Ethos, Vision & Values in a more visual way. In the meantime, if you’d like to read about our Ethos, Vision and Values, please click here.
Over 6500 children from across the nation gathered together on Tuesday 8th January 2018 to be part of Young Voices 2018. Bussage School took almost 7o children to participate in this exciting event; they had a thoroughly fabulous time, singing their hearts out. Well done children you made our school and your parents and teachers very proud! A huge thank you to the the parent helpers that attended the day with us to help support our singers and keep them safe in the huge Genting arena, Birmingham. It was lovely to see so many parents make the trip to Birmingham to the evening concert to watch our school perform.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all parents, teachers and friends of the school for supporting our Christmas Fair on Friday 24th November.
The turnout was brilliant and we were delighted to hear that the event raised a staggering £2,301 a £150 more than last year.
Well done everyone!
