Advice on face coverings in school
You will be aware that the government has stated that from 8th March it is a requirement for all students to wear face coverings inside school and now additionally in lessons where social distancing is difficult. It is essential that all students always have their own personal face coverings on arrival at school and with them throughout the day. I am sure that you will understand that we will need to ask students to return home to collect masks if they arrive at school without them.
Public Health England has produced a simple guide on how to make a face covering which you can view here. I would ask that all parents and carers watch this video on how to safely wear a mask and reinforce the key points with their child. Should any children be exempt from wearing a face covering, I would be grateful if their parent/carer contacts their child’s guidance leader.
