Covid-19 School Provision

Provision During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Last updated: 27 January 2021

During the current period of school closures, we are committed to supporting all our children. Pupils are being provided with a broad educational package, ensuring coverage across the full curriculum.

Our key priorities are:

  • Health, safety and wellbeing of pupils, families and staff
  • Daily provision of high quality, structured learning materials for our pupils (at home or in school) spanning all areas of the curriculum
  • Learning, pastoral and safeguarding support for pupils and their families

Critical worker and online learning provision  

BPS is open for all pupils who have booked places in the critical worker and vulnerable children programme.

In keeping with government guidance, the Kindergarten is also open.

All other pupils are being taught via our home learning (remote teaching) system and should not come into school.

At this time, communication is vital. Phase Leaders keep in regular contact with both pupils and parents, in addition to regular updates from the Headmistress. We endeavour to keep in contact with all our pupils (e.g. through the 1:1 reading sessions, selection of live lessons and a selection of optional extra-curricular activities and clubs).

Our Prep pupils have access to the support they need and can contact any member of the teaching team – we have all been very impressed by the level of responsibility they are taking for their learning, and the levels of independence they have shown in messaging their teachers directly.

We are all learning how to do things differently for a while. Remote learning can be a great way to continue learning outside the classroom, particularly in difficult circumstances, but no one expects parents to be full-time teachers or to be educational and subject experts. We have put together a series of short videos you may find useful in supporting the growth, development and learning of each BPS girl.
