ADVERSE WEATHER

 

If it is necessary to close the school in the case of adverse weather we will send a text to all parents. There will also be a notice on this website and on that of Essex County Council (www.essex.gov.uk). We have been advised that local radio stations will no longer be giving out details of school closures. Please ensure that we always have an up to date mobile number for the text service.

Welcome to our website

You will find lots of information about the school which will be useful if you are considering Great Bradfords Junior for your child or if you are already part of our school community.  There are sections which give you both official and useful information about our school, including the latest letters sent to parents, our newsletters and dates for your diary for the year. We also update the website on a weekly basis with names of children that have won the 'Golden Envelope' this week.

 

You will notice that our school motto is "together we learn; together we grow" and we have our three value aims which accompany this: be safe, be kind, be responsible; and these are the basis of our curriculum at Great Bradfords Junior School.

 

On this site we can provide only a brief picture of the range of activities, resources and opportunities we make available to our children.  We can tell you about the curriculum, our aims, activities and successes, but we cannot convey our ethos or atmosphere.  The best way to make a decision about choice of schooling is to simply pay us a visit, preferably during the school day.

 

We are very proud of our school and fully recognise the significant role parents play.  Confidence in a school comes from knowledge and understanding of what is happening within it.  As parents and carers I hope you will take advantage of the occasions for meeting with us and attend consultations and open afternoons with your child's teacher in order for us to work together to support your child's learning.  It is important that mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility.  Parents play such an important role in matters of regular punctual attendance and in supporting the school in its requirements in terms of school uniform and positive behaviour.

 

We hope you find this website useful.  If you require any additional information which is not available on this website, or you having trouble locating the information you require, then do not hesitate to contact us via the school office.
