Covid update - masks07/10/21
The number of Covid cases in school has risen recently, and in order to do all we can to prevent the spread of the virus we have decided to reintroduce the rule of wearing masks in public areas. From Monday, therefore, we ask pupils to wear a mask:
• on any bus (this is already enforced)
• on the corridors
• when queuing in the canteen
Wearing a mask inside and outside the classroom will remain optional. If a pupil is exempt from wearing a mask, we ask them to wear the lanyard. It will be the pupil's responsibility to remember a mask (and ideally a spare one). We will no longer hand out masks to pupils who have forgotten them as this proved very costly before the summer. If you are having difficulty providing a mask for your child, please contact the school. If and when Covid levels fall, we will revert on this rule.
