COVID 19 Parent Information

Great Bardfield Primary School-Current Position with the Pandemic-4th January 2021

In line with current Government guidance it is planned that Great Bardfield Primary School will temporarily BE CLOSED for all pupils other than those of Critical Worker Parents or those pupils considered to be vulnerable. Please see the letter sent to parents and the Contingency Framework from the DFE:

A detailed Risk Assessment will be carried out prior to 4th January 2021 and there will be measures in place to make the site as Covid-19 safe as possible. Parents of pupils who will be coming to school during the closure, in this emergency situation, should follow the procedures that were in place for the Autumn Term.

We will be providing remote learning to pupils who will not be in school. This is outlined in the letter and document below: 

As all teaching and support staff will now be in school (there is no member of staff Shielding during this closure) we are now in a position to offer remote support sessions, three times per day as outlined in the Remote Learning Letter above. To be sent the log in details for the Zoom sessions parents and pupils must read the Zoom protocols and sign to say that they agree to them. Please see below:

When pupils return to school after lockdown (predicted by the DFE to be the 8th March 2021) we will use the Covid Catch Up fund to diminish gaps in childrens learning and support pupils with emotional trauma. Please see below:

For more information about how Great Bardfield Primary School is responding to the Pandemic, please see our policy below:

All parents have been sent a Covid-19 specific Home School Agreement which they must read with their child.  A copy of this can be found here along with our amended Behaviour Policy:
