Wokingham Borough Council recognises the Government announcement regarding schools re-opening at the earliest from June 1, and are working to support schools in their planning for the return of children to their settings. We wholly support the benefits of children re-engaging with learning, and are also minded to the safety and wellbeing of all of our Wokingham learners.
We continue to work with all Schools and Academies in the Borough, and will support each Governing Body or Trust to make decisions that are appropriate to their school and school community to ensure the safe return of children, young people and teaching staff. This may mean that for some schools children will not return on the 1st June, but will return when the schools risk assessments and plans determine it is right and safe for them to do so.
This will not affect the eligible children that have been continuing to attend schools since school closures on the March 20.
