  • Do you provide guidance for students?
    We believe that teaching children the life skills they need to be safe and happy is essential to their wellbeing. For that reason, we introduce Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Education (PSHE) from the very start. In Early Years it begins with Circle Time. In Primary, PSHE is taught as its own subject, and is the theme of many assemblies. PSHE covers a diverse array of topics, including social and emotional wellbeing, honing one’s study skills, and how to develop a positive learning mindset.
  • How does the school communicate with parents?

    BSB Sanlitun maintains excellent communication with parents. Our teachers send a daily email to mums and dads, and Friday’s email looks ahead to next week’s learning. We use Seesaw to send messages to parents, and teachers post pictures showing Mum and Dad what’s been happening this week in class!

    Parents receive a weekly email called Notes from the Principal’s Study, with school news, updates and events. We also have a weekly school newsletter. We provide termly reports, hold parent meetings throughout the year, and have a Parent Consultation Day in the Spring Term. In addition, our teachers are always just an email or phone call away.

    When it comes to social media, you can follow BSB Sanlitun on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and WeChat!

  • What qualifications do your teachers have?
    We hire only those teachers who are highly qualified and have several years’ experience. Most of our teachers are British. We also have many marvellous teaching assistants (TAs), all of whom have degrees.
  • English is not our family’s first language. How will BSB Sanlitun support my child?
    We have an excellent English as an Additional Language (EAL) programme, which caters for children who arrive at our school with little or no English. Through our programme’s effectiveness and in our English-speaking environment, children pick the language up incredibly quickly!
  • How will BSB Sanlitun support my child when they join the school? 
    Our school is renowned for its warm and welcoming attitude to new families. In fact, 98% of our families say their first contact with our school was helpful and positive! We provide you with lots of information about your child’s class and the school prior to your arrival. We can also put you in touch with a family before your child’s first day and arrange for them to have a ‘buddy’ to ensure they settle in and have everything they need.
  • Do you provide after-school activities?
    All Primary students attend After-School Activities (ASAs) for an hour after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Our ASAs change termly, and include a wide variety of music, sports and creative activities. There is no extra charge for these.
  • Does my child need a laptop?
    No—we have a school iPad programme for students in Years 5 and 6.
  • Do you have a nut or allergy policy?
    We are a nut-free school. We also ask parents to let us know if their child has any form of allergy.
