We hope you have all had a restful and yet enjoyable summer.
Firstly, we would like to welcome you and your child to Baddow Hall Infant School. We feel privileged to be part of your child’s journey through education. Ensuring your child has a positive start to school is our main focus and is why we spend the first half term getting to know your child.
Our topic this half term is ‘Marvellous Me’ and our focus is exactly that. We will start off focusing on friendships and getting your child used to the setting and the routines of school.
