School Uniform (Message from Pope and Smith)

Pope and Smith will open from 15th June 2020 with normal trading hours. They will have PPE and appropriate signage in place to adhere to social distancing guidelines, but please be aware that the process will take longer and may well involve queuing. They have asked for one parent per child where possible.

Their online service is already in operation and they will be processing them when they return to trading.

We are currently unable to accommodate visitors to our site but are keeping a close eye on guidance from the government. We hope to be able to offer tours in September and host our Open Evening. 

PSHE Programme 

As a part of your child’s education at Great Baddow High School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.

We would like to invite you to read our ‘PSHE – Parent Pack’ and proposed PSHE Policy which will explain new statutory changes coming in in September 2020 as well as an overview of the new PSHE programme of study. As a school community, we are committed to working in partnership with parents to improve our provisions. Please complete the Parent Consultation form to provide us with your thoughts and feedback.

To give us time to implement changes based on feedback, the consultation period will end on the 31st of July 2020.
