Dear Parents & Carers,

We hope you are well and safe. Following the latest Government announcement, all schools will be reverting to home learning for the majority of children. We know this presents its own issues and we will continue to provide information to support parents and children during this time. Daily remote learning is available via Microsoft Teams, login details have been sent home previously.

More information regarding the latest national lockdown can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus

More information on the Lockdown rules can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home

Guidance on making a childcare bubble with another household at: www.gov.uk/guidance/making-a-childcare-bubble-with-another-household

Home learning will be provided for as long as National Lockdown is in operation from January 6th to at least half term.

For technical questions linked to accessing remote learning please email: office365@emmbrook-jun.wokingham.sch.uk

Again, we thank you for your support in this.

Notice – If a child is at home with a fever or any other symptom of Covid-19 then the family must remain at home to isolate. This includes the unwell child’s siblings. It is then recommended that everyone in your household is tested.
