"Our future depends on building upon the experiences of the past, learning from the present and preparing for the challenges of the future"


We have made a short video to let you see some of the changes at Bushvalley, which have been put in place to make sure everyone is safe. 

We will work together to combat COVID-19 at Bushvalley


This website page is intended to outline the safety protocols and procedures in place for the safe and positive environment here at Bushvalley Primary School.  At Bushvalley Primary School, we want everyone (pupils, staff, parents & the community) to embrace, learn and grow from these new experiences.

 Never within our lifetimes, has a situation like this happened. But it can make us all more resilient, stronger, independent and community-minded. Together, as a Bushvalley community, we shall fight this. We need everyone to play their part - to social distance, hand wash and be sensible.

Bushvalley Primary School is a safe place to embrace, to learn and to grow. We will continue to provide our high level of teaching and learning, undisrupted as far as possible by COVID-19.

 Look forward to doing this together.

 Mrs C Irwin
