Following recent government advice, we are asking pupils to wear face masks whilst moving between lessons inside the buildings. We will provide temporary masks if a child fails to bring their own mask. However, we ask parents to ensure their child has an appropriate cloth face mask that is reusable and can be washed with their uniform. We are encouraging the use of face masks in corridors moving to lessons or lining up for their next lesson.
We are not asking pupils or staff to use face masks in lessons. The priority in classes is the education of the child and we are confident that this remains a safe and productive learning environment best achieved without masks.
We will review the use of face masks over the next two weeks and revise our procedures if we feel this becomes necessary.
