National Lockdown - from 5th January 2021
School reopened on Monday 4th January and that evening, the Prime Minister announced a new National Lockdown to include the closure of schools to most children except those of key workers and children who are vulnerable. All other children must stay at home and engage in Remote Learning.
It is important that, wherever possible, you keep your child at home. The pandemic has not gone away and currently, we are seeing the number of Covid related deaths rise to over 1,000 a day. The place where your child is safest is at home. Whilst at home, your child should be engaging in Remote Learning. This link will tell you more about remote learning expectations at Bailiffe Bridge School and how you can best support your child with their learning at home at this time.
Keeping your child safe online
While working online during the lockdown period, it is more important than ever that children are keeping safe online. Please visit the Think you know website for a range of ideas and activities about online safety.
