FACE COVERINGS – REQUIRED INDOORS FROM THURSDAY 5TH NOVEMBER 2020

Due to rising COVID-19 infection rates in secondary schools, starting from Thursday 5th November 2020 we are asking all staff, support staff and students to wear face coverings in lessons, on the corridors, in toilet areas, in the Dining Hall and other indoor communal areas around school. We will not have to wear coverings whilst outside, whilst taking part in sports or in the designated year group areas at break time and lunchtime (to allow food and drink to be consumed). Those students who are exempt on health and medical grounds, will continue to be exempt, although we would ask students to try a visor first.

This video from the Work Health Organisation provides further useful information about children and face coverings:
