Dear Parents and Guardians,


Every week seems to be as busy as the last but we have had a great week.


The learning that has centered around Remembrance day has been powerful and the children have shown great respect and care.  Yesterday we added 3 poppy sculptures to our Ingwe garden.  This was a special moment and the children behaved beautifully.  We plan to develop the garden further with sculptures and signs to develop the space into a reflective, calm and nurturing one.


The children loved their non uniform day today and we thank you for the contributions you have made.  Plans are coming together as we head towards Christmas and next week I will share further information with you. 


Today Wokingham have issued advice to headteachers regarding Covid and staying as safe as possible; rates are predicted to steadily rise.  I will share updated plans for our school next week regarding any extra measures we will be implementing.  I would however like to ask parents to wear face masks again at school drop off and collection.  


I would like to finish by thanking parents for their support.  We have so many prospective parents contacting the school regarding Reception 2022 places and I thank so many of you for the positive feedback you are giving.  Whilst it is great for the school and prospective parents to see, it means a great deal to the staff and me.


I wish you a safe and good weekend.

With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
