About The BSA
Bledington Primary School works hard to foster good relationships with the local community. The school boasts a strong School Association who work tirelessly to support the school and its children.
The Bledington School Association is a small but dedicated group of parents and staff who help to run events to raise extra funds for the school. With your continued support, the BSA can help to fund trips, workshops, class libraries, art supplies and all sorts of things to enhance your child's learning.
The BSA is currently made up of the following members: Annie Hammerstein, Carly Ratcliffe, Steph Bourns, Janine White, Carla Humi, Miranda Hall, Helene Coleman, Jill Kewley and Lisa Nessling.
We are always looking for new members to join us, so if you would like to get involved then please do let one of us know! It really isn't a big commitment to be on the BSA, we only meet an hour every term to plan and organise events for the forthcoming term.
We'd like to say a big thank you to Luisa Walker for all her hard work as Chairperson of the BSA for the first six months of the academic year. We hope all has gone well with your move to Australia!
Huge thanks to Annie Hammerstein and the BSA for organising the Spring Raffle. It is normally our biggest fundraiser and this year was no exception! The raffle raised a brilliant £1764.00 plus an extra £1000 from matched funding from Barclays. Thanks to everyone who bought and sold tickets and an extra special thank you to Miranda Hall and Dani Lenton who both sold hundreds of tickets.
Barn Dance - 22nd March 2019
The BSA organised a Barn Dance on the 22nd March 2019. The event was a great success and families enjoyed donning their Stetsons and eating chilli and jacket potatoes! Thanks to everyone involved in making the Barn Dance such a fun evening.
This year our Wreath making Workshop will be held on Thursday 30th November 2017. Doors open from 7pm as we start at 7:30pm sharp! No experience necessary, please bring your own foliage (you do need quite a lot!), maybe an apron and some secateurs or scissors. We will provide you with a glass of fizz, nibbles and all the wire, moss & decorations. This is always a fun festive evening!
Please book you place with Mel Gorton, cost £15 per person
Our Pig Raising Evening raised £600 - thank you again for your support!

Thanks to Cotswold Carriers, http://www.cotswoldcarriers.com/
We are very pleased to have been given a date for car parking at the Cotswold School in Bourton-on-the-Water but we desperately need some volunteers to help out! The Cotswold School open up one of their playing fields for car parking over the summer and all we have to do is put a banner out first thing in the morning to direct people to the car park and then collect money from vehicles entering the car park. There needs to be two people on the gate at a time and we will work out a rota of two hour time slots. If you can spare a couple of hours on this day then please let us know, this is a brilliant and easy fundraiser when the weather is good as Bourton attracts lots of tourists during the summer months. Thank you!
The Car Parking raised £270 for the BSA - thank you to everyone who helped.
School Disco – Friday 18th March 2016
