Dear Parents & Carers,
We hope you enjoyed the weather over the half-term break and managed to stay safe while doing so.
At this point, it’s not clear if we will be able to proceed to the next stage of the Governments restrictions road map, many of our planned events and activities are dependent upon decision that will be made by the government over the next few days so we will do our best to keep you informed of any changes. The planned secondary transfer day for Y6 children has already been postponed to the 7th of July and the PTA are considering options for the Summer BBQ on the 3rd of July.
As we were unable to have Class exhibitions this term we have put together some short presentations that will give you a glimpse of what the children have been up to. You should find the links to these on our homepage and hope you enjoy seeing some of the fantastic work the children have been doing. I’d like to thank the staff for taking the time to put these together for you.
Message from Wokingham Borough Council:
Surge Testing to Contain the Covid-19 Variant
Extensive surveillance of Covid-19 has identified a small number of cases of the Covid-19 Delta variant that was first found in India in Wokingham Borough, that cannot be traced back to international travel.
As such, surge testing for all residents over the age of 12 who have no Covid-19 symptoms will be deployed in the following council wards between Monday 07 June and Monday 21 June:
This will enable us to identify any community spread of the new variant and restrict further transmission. All cases are now self-isolating and we have conducted robust contact tracing to identify their contacts and ask them to self-isolate.
Thanks – WBC
