1st April 2022
Dear Parents and Carers
We have reached the end of another term, and it was fantastic to be able to welcome you to our first open afternoon since the start of the pandemic! The children really enjoyed sharing their learning with you; there were some aspirational home learning projects on display. Next term, we plan to have many further opportunities to welcome you into school. I hope you have a restful Easter holiday and return, refreshed, on Wednesday 20th April.
To see what’s been happening at BGPS, please go to our website and Twitter feed:
We have been notified by Dolce, the cost of school lunches will increase after the Easter holiday to £2.55 per meal. They have tried to absorb the increased costs for consumables but are unable to continue.
The rules around Covid testing have changed again. Details can be found here. Testing is no longer free, but if your child does test positive, they should stay at home for 3 days after the positive test. If they are unwell, including having a raised temperature, they should stay at home until they are well and no longer have a raised temperature.
