Welcome to BISB!

Parents are a key element in our school community, and their support and participation are an essential part of school life. We pride ourselves on our strong sense of family and community and believe that the dynamic partnership developed between staff and parents, based around open and constructive dialogue, underpins the energy and enthusiasm behind our children’s success, both in and out of the classroom.
Our School Handbook covers the main guidelines and rules. You can view and download it here.
After School care is available at the end of each school day from 15.30 – 17.45 Mondays to Thursdays. Children can be picked up then. There is a scale of charges for Garderie supervision as this is not covered by the normal school fees.
Our attractive and practical uniform gives our children a sense of identity, and of belonging to the school. The school uniform is compulsory for all children throughout the school, from the Nursery class upwards.
SCHOOL - PARENT PARTNERSHIP
We fully recognize and value the essential part that parents play in their children’s education and believe very much in the idea of the greater school family and community. We therefore encourage and welcome parent involvement in school life, with both mums and dads participating in and helping with school trips.
We organize several family social activities throughout the year ranging from walks in the local woods to seasonal craft evenings, sponsored swims for local charities and festive Christmas celebrations. These events not only help to build the school community but are also aimed at raising money to support local or overseas charities. They are well-supported and much enjoyed and have the added benefit of creating and reinforcing valuable, and much needed support networks between parents outside of school.
