|Mr Richards' words Autumn week 6|

After half term we will be moving to a two weekly cycle for menus due to the supply chain issues we are experiencing. Please also be aware that the menus may need to change without notice due to these issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Flu Immunisations & Covid-19 Vaccinations
For those that missed the deadline to consent for Flu and/or Covid-19, please see the process to follow now from NHS Berkshire School-aged Immunisations Team:
Any parents wishing to consent for the flu will need to wait until 24 hours after the session when the school consents will be reopened. They will then need to complete a form using the original information sent from the school (electronic consent form school code BK110153B) and wait for the link to be emailed to them to book into one of our catch up clinics.
Any parents that have missed the deadline to consent for Covid will need to wait until further national guidance is released as we currently do not have any planned catch up clinics for the Covid vaccination.
LFT and PCR Testing
Please ensure your daughter is Lateral Flow Testing twice weekly and reporting results via the GOV.UK website. Please remember LFTs are for asymptomatic testing only, so if your daughter is displaying any of three main covid symptoms (temperature, cough or loss of smell), they must take a PCR test and should not come into school until you have received the results. Please inform the school of PCR test results once received on firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
The Big Ask…and The Big Answer
Earlier this year, The Children’s Commissioner asked all children in England to complete a survey, to show the true voice of this generation. The results are in and The Children’s Commissioner would like to say thank you. Over half a million children responded, the largest survey of its kind in history, and at a landmark moment for young people growing up in this country.
Children were united – they told us they want to get back to school, to get on, and do well. To have fulfilling lives. Children cared deeply about their family, their communities, their wellbeing and are an ambitious, excited generation. They want to make a contribution to a better world, a greener world, rooted in fairness of opportunity for everyone. Please read more here.
