Brakenhale School

This morning Brakenhale school has taken the decision to move to online learning for today following a confirmed case of COVID-19. This is to give the school the chance to liaise with Public Health England and conduct contract tracing. All students should access online learning and not attend the site.

The school has advised parent and carers accordingly today.

Provision for key worker and vulnerable children will continue to be made on site and the school will continue to communicate directly with parents and carers.

Crown Wood Primary School

Due to a small number of confirmed COVID-19 cases at Crown Wood Primary School, the school has today decided to provide home online learning until the Christmas holidays start. The staff and pupils' health and safety is a top priority and the school is liaising with Public Health England, conducting contact tracing and will remain in contact with parents and students.

All Bracknell Forest schools continue to work as hard as they can to provide effective education in a safe environment for their pupils. The decision to move to online learning has not been taken lightly but has been made to make sure of the safety of all staff and pupils.

We are continuing to work with schools to support them and will continue to help them manage outbreaks in line with our Outbreak Control Plan.

Parents and carers should continue to send their children to school as long as they have not been asked to self-isolate, they are well and their school or bubble isn’t closed.

More information about what to do if your child has been asked to self-isolate, has symptoms or has tested positive can be found on the NHS website.

If parents have any questions or concerns, please contact your childs school directly.
