  • Allergies – Please remember that at BSB have a nut policy as we have pupils with severe allergies. Since our aim is to reduce the presence of nuts in school, may we ask all parents to not allow nuts or products containing nuts (including sesame snacks) in any form into school bags, lunches or snacks. Thank you for your support.
  • Glass Containers – Please remember that no student children should bring in any food or drink in glass containers.
  • Safe Parking – For the safety of both children and adults, make sure you do not park on the zebra crossings in Ginesta street. This reduces visibility for car drivers and makes crossing extremely dangerous especially at the end of after-school activities when it gets dark.
  • Safe Riding Helmets ON! – If your child rides a bike or scooter to and from school, please ensure that s/he acts responsibly (especially on busy main roads), wears a helmet for safety reasons and is visible to other road users.
