Dear Parents and Carers


To see what’s been happening at BGPS, please go to our Twitter feed:


Macmillan Cancer Charity

Thank you so much for your generosity with the cake sale for Macmillan last Friday.  We raised a fantastic £306.46!  Thank you, too, to Fran and Becky who did such an amazing sales job at the end of the day!  Macmillan is a cause that is very close to our hearts at the moment: our own Mrs Hind (who we are missing very much) is benefitting from Macmillan support and so we are really pleased to be able to make such a generous donation.


Harvest Donations

Jimmy’s Cambridge have asked me to pass on their thanks to you all for your harvest donations.  They are very much appreciated.

Please check our school website for information about future events, term dates, training days etc.
