BGS Parent Forum

​BGS is a large and dynamic community, which works as a partnership between the school, parents and pupils.

The school welcomes the involvement of parents and guardians in its decision-making process on both strategic and operational matters. The Parent Forum was established in 2012 to act as a consultative body and ‘sounding board’ for discussion and review of ideas, initiatives and issues regarding BGS.

Current BGS parents and guardians can find further information on the Parent Forum, its remit, current year-group representatives, and latest minutes on the SIMS Parent web pages

To contact the Parent Forum, please email

As part of the parent body, the Parent Forum offers a valuable two-way dialogue to enable the school to have a greater understanding of families’ experience at BGS, supporting the maintenance and development of the school’s provision, and to improve parents’ understanding of the school’s functioning.

The Parent Forum aims to meet at least once per term, and to consist of at least two representatives from each year-group. The agenda for each meeting is compiled by the Chair, following input from year-group reps and/or from direct wider parent contact. Following meetings, minutes will be shared with the whole parent body via the weekly newsletter email and also on SIMS Parent
