Monday 23rd March 2020

Category : Coronavirus , Pupils , School , Staff

Parents and guardians of children attending BEP Academy should have received a text message outlining whether or not your child has been offered a place at school, from Monday 23rd March to the Easter break. Government advice is for children to stay at home.  If this isn’t possible, your son/daughter/ward will have been offered a place at school.

We will be sending details of how to access our on-line learning system, for all pupils on Monday, which will include a reminder of your child’s email address, password and instructions. Children will also be reminded to use the system sensibly and safely.

If you have any questions, please call 01708 436440 between 8.30 AM and 4.00 PM, Monday to Friday. We will also be setting up a dedicated email address for any IT queries which you can use at any time.

Finally, I’d like to say how very proud I am of my staff. Because of their continued dedication to all young people, we have been able to form four full teams, two each for our Basildon and Romford sites.  Each team will rotate at the centre, ensuring we maximise ‘social distancing’ and, as far as possible, protect our colleagues and children.

These are incredibly challenging and unprecedented times for everyone, and we would like to thank all parents and carers for the support we’ve received.  We will continue to communicate with the whole school community and keep you informed over the next few weeks as best we can.

Mr K Sims, Executive Headteacher
Mrs J Green, Principal

As already advised, BEP Academy will remain open for all students tomorrow, Friday 20th March 2020.

BEP Academy will also remain open, to most students, for the next two weeks (Monday 23rd March – Friday 3rd April 2020), taking us up to the Easter holidays.

By the end of tomorrow (Friday 20th March), all students will have received instructions on how to access our on-line classroom and a reminder on how to access their email account.  All children will be required to access the online system and complete work set.

Identified students will also receive a draft timetable for the next two weeks and be expected to attend their home school (Romford or Basildon – both sites will be open).  We will confirm timetables for selected students covering the summer term over the Easter break.

We will provide a further update by the end of tomorrow (Thursday 19th March 2020).  All children should continue to attend school tomorrow and Friday, unless they have already shown symptoms of COVID-19 and/or are self-isolating with others in the home.
