Welcome to BPS Weekly Newsletter - 15th May 2020
We hope all is well at home. School continues to remain open for key worker children at present. Following the Governments announcement in relation to the school's possible reopening for some children on the 1st June, we will provide further updates as we have them.
Parents/Carers of children attending breakfast and after school club from the 20th April will be billed fortnightly throughout the remainder of lock down. The school lunch system is being updated, but once its up and running parents/carers will be billed for school meals. If you are wanting advice, have any questions or need help logging into to the online learning platforms please don't hesitate to contact us.
Parent/Carers of year 6 pupils looking to apply for for free school transport from September 2020 must have your application submitted by 31st May.

We attach a link to a survey regarding Learning at Home. Please can we ask parents/carers to find the time to complete it as your feedback is important to us.
Online Learning From Home
We are delighted to see so many pupils using The learning Platform with up to 70% of children using it in some classes, which is way above the national average across other schools of 34%!
When your child logs in they will see the activities on their home screen. We regularly check the logins and are leaving comments on pupils activities.
