As a google school, we recommend all parents use a Gmail account to communicate with us.
Recently we have experienced difficulties sending and receiving emails from Yahoo and Hotmail accounts. Now might be a better time than ever to set up a fresh new email account with a provider such as Gmail or Outlook. You can still retain your Yahoo or Hotmail account and simply forward all your mail from your Yahoo account to your new account Gmail or Outlook. We believe this will be an ongoing problem, not just for contacting BSM but contacting many other businesses who use the same technology as us. If you do decide to create a new account, please do update your details with the school so we can ensure you receive all communications we send out and so you can contact us. We always endeavour to reply to email promptly, if you feel your email has not been attended to within 3 business days, please call us to ensure it has been delivered.
BSM has a simple uniform, which changes slightly in style as pupils move through the school. Our uniform encourages a sense of belonging and pride in our students. All students from Foundation Stage to Year 11 wear school uniform. Sixth form students must follow the Sixth Form dress code.
The Uniform Shop stocks a range of school clothing, including swimwear, bags, hats, sportswear and house shirts. Boys trousers and school shoes are not sold in the shop.
Parents are invited to buy uniform from any retailer, not just the BSM shop. There is also a Facebook Page run by parents for buying and selling uniform.
If you are not able to meet our uniform expectations, please do not worry. Please contact your year leader via the Primary or Senior office to explain your situation.
If you have any questions about our uniform please get in touch.
Joining BSM Senior School in Year 7
The School Day
Timings of the school day
|Foundation Stage 1||7:30am – 12:30pm Sunday to Thursday|
|FS2, KS1 (Years 1-2)||7:30am – 1:30pm Sunday to Thursday|
|KS2 (Years 3 – 6)||7:30am – 2:00pm Sunday to Thursday|

Students can be dropped at school from 7:00am (7:10am for FS).
If your child is late to school, they must sign in at Reception at the top of school. They will receive a Late Slip which must be taken with them to class and handed to the teacher.
(From September 2022, there is no early finish on Thursdays in the Primary School.)
Please let us know, using the Absence Form below, if your child will be absent from school. The form should be completed if your child is ill or if you have a planned absence from school.
We will then update the register and, if required, may call you to talk about how we can best support your child to return to BSM as soon as possible.
Signing out/Early release
If you wish to take your child out of school early, then you will need to notify the Head of School in advance. Students must report to the main reception for an exit slip in order to leave school.
Signing in/Late arrival
Students returning to school must follow the lateness procedure and sign in at the main reception on entering school grounds.
If parents plan to be away from home for any length of time, please inform the Primary or Senior Office via email. Particularly in the Primary School, it is helpful to know who is collecting your child if there is a change in routine. If both parents are away it is vital that we receive written confirmation of dates and the name and contact details of the person who will be the acting parent, prior to your departure. This person will be the school’s point of contact in the event of an accident or emergency within school and will be expected to make decisions on your behalf.
Drop-off and pick-up arrangements
It gets busy at drop-off and pick-up times so we ask parents to follow the information in the link below:
This diagram will be updated in August 2022 (after the removal of the early pick up on Thursdays).
Security Pass Application Form
Please complete the form below to apply for a Parent Security Pass.
Please email the completed form to the Primary or Senior Offices or drop into Reception at the top of school.
Oryx After School Club
Our Oryx Club operates during term time to provide supervision for children waiting for siblings or activities after school. Spaces are limited. Please contact the Primary Office for further information.
We have a school bus that runs between Al Mouj and BSM. Please contact the Primary & Senior Offices to find out more.
Our Nurses can be contacted from 7:15am - 3:30pm each school day.

The Nurses’ office and First Aid room is located below the KS1 playground. Please keep our Health and Wellbeing team updated with any changes in your child’s health status or needs.
Students should not carry medicines other than asthma inhalers. If your child needs medication whilst at school please give the medication to the nurses with details of the dose, route and timings required.
