Face Coverings

Friday 16th October 2020

Since face coverings have become mandatory in certain school situations at the end of August, almost all students have responded positively. We would like to thank students and their parents/carers for their support. As a reminder face coverings are now mandatory in:

In some classes, where there is a high level of student movement, we are also expecting students to wear a face covering.

We have a system where students who are exempt are known to staff and this is now well established.

However, we continue to issue to students too many daily disposable face coverings. On average we issue over 150 coverings a day. This is not sustainable and we are seeking further improvements in student responsibility.  Ideally we’d like continued parent/carer support to encourage our young people to bring and wear their own washable face covering. To support this, after the October holiday, we will begin to send parents/carers of students who are not responding to our interventions a letter. This will alert parents/carers and encourage a further discussion at home.

Nevertheless, our staff will continue to issue disposable coverings to those who need them.

Please watch the video below, video made by four of our School and House Captains, that outlines how and why we expect our staff and students to wear a face covering. Ellie even shows how not to wear it.  See if you can spot it.
