Covid-19 – Arrangements for wearing Masks

2020.08.26 ParentCarer Letter1

A letter has been sent to parents regarding Covid 19 arrangements in school, including the new regulations about wearing of masks which comes into effect on Monday 31st August.

Masks should be kept in a plastic bag/ similar when not being worn.

A clean mask should be brought each day.

Parents should get in touch with us at school if they think their child is exempt from wearing a mask so that we can inform the relevant staff.

This is another change that we will support young people with and we appreciate your support as always.

Acting Rector
