During this period of National lockdown, starting on Wednesday 6th January 2021, the school will be closed to most children.
Contingency Plan in the Event of Partial or Whole School Closure
At Brightlingsea Primary School & Nursery our priority is the safety and well-being of our staff and pupils. We recognise that a school closure will impact differently on all of us and we acknowledge that children and families will face a variety of challenges. With this in mind, we have robust contingency plans for school closure.
We would ask all parents and carers to take the time to familiarise themselves with the information in our 'Virtual Learning Policy' so that our whole community can support our pupils and ensure minimal disruption to their learning. An accompanying letter, explaining how we will deliver sessions, can be found under the Newsletter section.
Thank you for helping us look after everyone in the school community and for understanding the unique challenges we are facing.
A Message From the Team
We are very pleased to welcome you and your child to our school community. As a recently amalgamated Primary School, we have been given a fantastic opportunity to reflect upon what our children need to learn, in the widest sense, on their journey to becoming citizens of the future. We will continue to tailor and refine our wider curriculum so that matches the current needs of our children.
Our school welcomes all children and places high priority on teaching the whole child within a socially inclusive environment. We know that children learn best if they are part of a stimulating and happy environment where academic skills are developed alongside social, physical and emotional skills.
We place a strong emphasis on developing positive partnerships with parents/carers and their children, in order to extend children’s learning and experiences in school.
The internal and external spaces around our school are continually evolving, allowing us to be creative in developing child friendly learning and play areas. The amalgamation enabled us to rethink the use of our buildings, which released space which we have remodelled to provide Food Technology, Library and Thrive areas. Quiet, ball game and landscaped play areas allow children to find a suitable area to enhance their activity and imagination. Accessible external covered areas throughout the school, enable children to enjoy a continuous learning environment both inside and outside the classroom.
