Extra Curricular Activities

​​Bushfield runs a wide variety of clubs throughout the week. A list of available clubs is sent out at the start of each term. While we cannot guarantee that a child will get into every club they choose, we try to accommodate their preferred choices. We also cannot guarantee that a child will get into a club for every day of the week however we try to accommodate as many children as possible. Please note that extra curricular clubs must be booked via Parentmail Forms.

Emergency Closure Procedure

Unfortunately, in very extreme circumstances we will deem it necessary to close the school. In the past during situations such as adverse weather conditions it has been very difficult for parents to ascertain whether to struggle to get their children into school.

To avoid this in the future Milton Keynes Council has a system which communicates school procedures not only to parents but also to the media. A website has been created for schools to log onto and close the school. It will then automatically update the local radio station and the Council Website.

If you think Bushfield may be closed, for example due to snow/flooding etc you can find out by visiting the Council’s Website:

Or you can listen to Heart FM Radio or BBC Three Counties Radio or visit their websites – or We will continue to work with local radio stations to ensure that details of school closures are announced during their shows, for parents who do not have internet access at home.


Residential Visits

Residential visits can provide children with great opportunities to learn and grow, as well as to develop their independence. Bushfield offers a residential visit in each year group. They start simple in Year Three, with a one night stay at the Caldecotte Experience in Milton Keynes.  Year Four go on a three day geographical field study trip to Aylmerton in Norfolk. Year Five visit the Pioneer Centre on a three day adventurous activity trip while Year Six visit Bournemouth for a celebratory residential, full of fun activities and visits by the seaside.


While there will be slight differences between year groups and classes, you can expect your child to receive weekly spelling words to learn. We also ask that children read a small amount on a daily basis. They will all have an appropriate reading book given to them by the school and are able to take out additional reading books through the library. Please could you encourage them to record their reading in their personal logs. The children will also be set regular maths homework to help consolidate their learning from class. Occasionally your child may be set some additional topic work or wider research / reading around a topic.





Curriculum Newsletters

Each term your child’s year group will send out a Curriculum Newsletter. This will give you an overview of the topics and skills being studied in each subject along with relevant year group information such as up-coming trips or events.  If you want to find out more about our curriculum for your child’s year group, please see the Curriculum Overview in the Key Information tab.   Alternatively please contact the school to make arrangements to discuss our curriculum in more depth.
