General Reminders

  • Consultation and Engagement Events 2017-2018 – As recently announced by the Headteacher, we are soon to launch an exciting programme of events for the Autumn and Spring Term, which we hope will substantially improve our engagement with the parent community. We will be seeking your opinion and your participation!
    In the meantime, please be assured that we are at your disposal for any query, suggestion or complaint at any time. You can contact us through our Parents’ Support Form on the website or send a direct email to the Headteacher, the Head of EY & Primary, the Head of Secondary & Pre-U, the Heads of Key Stage or your child’s tutor. For non-teaching-related queries (menus, uniform, transport, customer service…), you can contact Mr Rognoni, Head of Commerce and Community.
  • New Downloads on Portal Year 6 parents: If you could not attend the Information Meeting about the Trip to UK this week, you can now download the presentation from the Parents’ Portal. See Portal section below.

     And in 2 Weeks… Save these Dates!  

  • Monday, 23rd October – School Photos – These are the annual school photos of individual students and classes, which you will have an option to purchase if you wish. Please make sure your child looks at their best this day as these are good memories which last a lifetime
  • Monday, 23rd October – Bromley High School Jazz, Orchestra & Choir Visit Years 3-6 at 3pm – Come along if you would like to listen to a high-quality selection of Jazz standards!
  • Wednesday, 25th October & Thursday, 26th October – Reception (25th) and Nursery (26th) Parent-Teachers Meetings (2-6pm) – The online booking will be open on Monday, 16th October. Please book your meetings through the portal.
  • Thursday, 26th October – Parents Workshop: “Handwriting” – More information and registrations here

  • 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.
