“Together we learn; together we grow”

Welcome to Year 6

Dear Parents and Carers,

On 1st June we will be opening for those children that have confirmed they will return. Information can be found here:  pdf Great Bradfords Junior School's Partial Reopening Policy (765 KB)

If you have previously told us your child will not return but change your mind you will need to let us know in advance by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are sure you are concerned about the amount of time that your child will have away from school. Please try not to worry. If they continue to practise key skills in reading, writing and maths, then it will be a smoother transition when they eventually return. During this time, please continue to practise reading, times tables, writing short stories and handwriting.
