Good afternoon,

There has been an announcement from the Department for Education changing their guidance about face coverings in schools.  You will find the summary online here and the full guidance here.  As a result of this guidance, bearing in mind that we are a school with lots of outside space and only a small number of corridors, which can be managed to avoid congestion, we are changing our guidance on face covering to  "we strongly advise that face coverings are worn when moving around inside the school buildings and may be worn at other times if individuals wish to do so".  They remain compulsory on all forms of school transport.

Should the guidance from the local authority or from the government change we will, of course, update you swiftly.

Best wishes

James Harris
