Compulsory wearing of face masks

From 8th March and for the foreseeable future, students will be required to wear a face mask, at all times inclusive of Form time and all lessons, whilst inside the building. We have been advised that medical exemptions should be supported by a note or letter of explanation from either your family doctor or relevant medical personnel clarifying the reason for this exemption. Could I therefore respectfully ask that parents and carers ensure that your child:

  • unless medically exempt, arrives at school with a face mask every day.
  • is well practised in putting the mask on and taking it off safely.
  • carries and wears a face mask that is suitable for school and will not cause offence to others.
  • does not wear a snood, scarf, visor or other face coverings in place of a face mask.
  • understands the importance of adhering to the regulations, put in place by the government, regarding wearing face masks, to
  • minimise spreading the virus, and so keeping both themselves and others safe.
