From Monday 31.8.20, it will be mandatory for all pupils and staff to wear a face covering as per the updated Scottish Government Advice:
In light of the latest scientific and public health advice, including World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, face coverings should now (unless exemptions apply) be worn:
- in secondary schools, by adults and all pupils moving around the school, such as in corridors and communal areas where physical distancing is difficult to maintain
- on dedicated school transport by all children aged five and over, bringing it into line with guidance for public transport
In practice this means that face coverings must be worn by pupils and staff when moving around the building between periods when the corridors are busy, and in social spaces at breaks and lunches.
Our staff will ensure that pupils are wearing their face covering before they leave the classroom to travel to their next class. Pupils will be regularly reminded how to put on, remove and store their face covering. Staff will also continue to stress the importance of maintaining high standards of cleaning, personal hygiene and physical distancing in addition to the wearing of a face covering.
This guidance does not apply to those who are exempt from wearing a face covering on medical grounds.
