UNIFORM PROVIDER IN SCHOOL

We have arranged with the school uniform provider to visit the school personally once a month as from November, with an aim to:

  • Help parents make orders with sizes from the stock we hold
  • Deal personally with any concerns regarding previous purchases/orders
  • Deliver stock to parents if they request a school delivery

Autumn Term dates in Castelldefels campus:

  • Wednesday, 8th November, 8.30-10am
  • Wednesday, 13th December, 8.30-10am

The calendar for the Spring Term will be published on the next term’s School Calendar

 

LANGUAGE LESSONS FOR PARENTS

We are pleased to announce that Beginners Adult Language Lessons in both Spanish and English are now available at BSB Castelldefels.

They are a real success at BSB Sitges, so we would also like parents in Castelldefels to have the opportunity to improve their language skills and meet other parents in a learning environment.

Timetable

  • Mondays: English Beginner, 9.05-9.50am (45-minute lessons)
  • Wednesdays: Spanish Beginner, 9.05-9.50am (45-minute lessons)
  • Places available per language group: 14*
  • Price: 10€ per lesson

Registration

Lessons will start on Monday, 6th November (English) and on Wednesday, 8th November (Spanish)

Sign up now for a half term (until Christmas) at the school Reception.

The fee will be billed in your school invoice coinciding with the termly billing of after-school activities.

Please note that a minimum of 6 adult students is required for the activity to go ahead

General Reminders

  • Year 3 Parents: 
    On Monday, 23rd, there will be no PE lessons. Children need to come to school in full uniform as it is the school photos. However, we will catch up this lesson on Wednesday as it is the InterHouse competition.
    The rest of the week children need to wear PE kit on their usual swimming day (Tuesday: Y3 Mint / Wednesday: Y3 Orange and Sky Blue).
    Y3 Mint class also need to wear their PE kit on Wednesday as it is our InterHouse competition.
  • Year 4 Parents:
    As the Year 4 InterHouse competition was cancelled on Wednesday, 18th October, due to the rain, they will have their dodgeball tournament on 8th November. Parents will be invited from 3.15pm.
  • Help Us to Improve and Parents’ Support – Remember that you can send us your questions or suggestions through our website at any time.
    Remember that you can also 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 – Y7-8-9 Interims. See Portal section below.

     And in 2 Weeks… Save these Dates!  

  • Half Term (30th October – 3rd November) – The school is closed and there are no lessons
  • 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.
