We have a number of special interest sub groups, which sit within the Parent Forum but are separate to the Parent Council:

Playground Improvement Project

The Playground Improvement group works towards creating a better playground for our children, and improving physical aspects, sensory aspects, and opportunities for activities. The first phase of the project has been gardening focused, creating a herb garden in the upper playground.

If you would like to get involved with improving our playground, please email [email protected]

Used Uniform Initiative

Through regular sorting of donated and discarded uniform, the Used Uniform Initiative aims to offer free uniform to those who wish to re-use, be that for financial or environmental reasons. There are regular stalls timed in with school events, as well as ad-hoc standalone stalls. Going forwards, the hope is to have a dedicated space within the school where free bagged uniform can be collected by those most in need, when they need it.

To find out more or to get involved, please email Anna at [email protected]

Sustainability Group

This group aims to build and maintain an active community among parents/carers, pupils, and teachers, and focuses on the 4 pillars of sustainability: Human, Social, Economic and Environment.  The group is made up of various interrelated working teams, and it connects with similar working groups in other schools and local communities throughout Edinburgh (for example, neighbourhood networks).

The Sustainability Group is open to any BPS parents/carers who wants to volunteer their time, thoughts, and passion for themes related to sustainability. If you want to help, please contact [email protected].

Road Safety & Safer Travel to School

This is an initiative to support a commute to school that doesn’t use a car. The group is involved in the Greenback Bruntsfield cycle path, and liaises with other schools to help improve the school commute and access.

Another focus is road safety at the school gate. We continue to encourage an alternative commute to school, and where the use of cars cannot be avoided, to ensure safe parking which does not pose a danger or obstruction to other road users .

This group is currently not active. If you would like to get involved, and help to improve access and safety for children around school, please email the Parent Council at [email protected]

If there is another cause you are passionate about that you would like to form a group for, please email [email protected]
