Updated guidance for education settings on coronavirus (COVID-19)
Letter from the Headteacher - 27th March 2020
I hope this message finds you and your families well.
I will be posting a weekly message to parents to update you on any information received and to provide helpful reminders regarding the support that is available for the work set by teachers and the feedback that students receive.
Remote Learning has certainly been a new challenge for everyone, and we know every member of the Great Baddow High School community is working their hardest to ensure the pupils are having meaningful learning experiences wherever they may be. We recognise that this is a period of adjustment and we will all adapt our practice over time.
I am writing to you today to outline our expectations for the pupils while they are away from school and provide some useful tips to help manage your child’s learning at home. I will also update you regarding the latest guidance we have received regarding examination grades this summer for Year 11 and 13 students.

Welcome Parents and Friends
Great Baddow High School: a happy, safe and successful 11-18 school of which we are very proud. Whether you are a prospective parent or considering applying for a job, I hope that you will find the information on this website helpful. However, I also strongly recommend that you visit us during the working day in order to get a real understanding of our school. We would be delighted to show you around our attractive site so that you can see students and teachers working together in well-equipped, specialist classrooms, using modern technologies and resources.
Our curriculum, enhanced by many enrichment opportunities, clubs, trips and visits, is broad and varied. We aim to support students in achieving their potential both academically and as well-rounded, confident individuals; we are equally committed to the professional development of our staff.
Mr P Farmer, Headteacher
