Newsflash

School breaks up for the summer holidays on Wednesday 22nd July. Thank you for all the support and hard work over the past few months from all the children, parents/carers and staff team. Please complete the home learning survey emailed to parents and carers. Goodbye and good luck to all our year 6s. Have a great summer holiday and we hope the children enjoy taking part in the 'Summer Reading Challenge'. We look forward to welcoming the children back in school on Wednesday 2nd September.
 
Welcome from the Headteacher
 
A warm welcome to our website which we hope you will find useful and interesting. Busbridge CofE Junior School is situated on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Godalming, and benefits from attractive and well resourced buildings and grounds. From the moment you walk through the door you will see that this is a happy, caring and secure environment with a nurturing family ethos.
 
Our values and aims are built firmly on Christian beliefs and principles, embodied not only in our heritage as a Church of England school, but also in our everyday interactions and activities. In this summer term 2019, we have introduced our new school Christian vision: "Cherish and Challenge" - to be a school that reflects the love of Christ: cherishing each other as unique individuals and challenging all to achieve and succeed. We also follow the British values which are important to us and can be found here. It is through the support we give each other that we establish respect, friendship, a sense of belonging and effective team work. Our staff team are experienced and committed to excellence in teaching, learning and pastoral care.
 
The children are at the heart of everything we do. Each and every one of them is special, and we enjoy celebrating their unique strengths and abilities. We have high aspirations for every child to thrive and achieve their best, whilst taking into account their individual needs and starting points.
 
We believe that learning should be irresistible, and offer a rich and engaging curriculum which focuses on creativity and first-hand experience both inside and outside the classroom. There is a balance of academic, artistic and physical education, as well as that of social and emotional well-being which prepares our pupils for future citizenship. We offer a wide and exciting range of extra-curricular opportunities such as clubs, educational visits, themed days, sporting events, plays, musical performances and assemblies.
 
The school has a record of high standards and was judged to be GOOD by Ofsted in June 2018, and GOOD by SIAMS in May 2019. However, we are never complacent and whilst celebrating what we do well are also quick to identify and address any area requiring development, so that we do all we can to ensure the children make the best possible progress.
 
We work closely in partnership with, and feel supported by, our parents through the 'Friends of Busbridge CofE Junior School', our governors through our governing body, the staff team and congregation at Busbridge and Hambledon Church, and our local community including our family of schools in the Godalming Confederation.
 
I feel very privileged to be able to lead this school, and hope that every child and family who attend will enjoy being a part of it. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more about us.
 
Please contact the school office if you would like a paper copy of any of the documents found on this website.
