Face Coverings in School

Covid-19 Update: 13 October 2020

A Special Update from the Principal

Face coverings must be worn Anti-Slip Floor Sticker | Social Distancing  Floor Stickers | Safety Signs and Notice

Given that Nottinghamshire is now an area where local restrictions apply, we need to change the emphasis on wearing face coverings in school. Although I still cannot mandate this fully, I must now insist that where possible staff and students wear face coverings / visors on corridors and in communal areas.

Student Expectations

From Wednesday 14 October all students should attend school with a face covering / visor.

Face coverings should be worn correctly over the nose and mouth.

Please let us know if your child is exempt from wearing a face covering.

When do I need to wear a face covering / visor?

  • In the morning during the line-up process before entering the building.
  • Before leaving the classroom or dining room
  • After break times during the line up process before re-entering the building

Students may wear a face covering / visor in class if they wish, provided they are wearing it correctly over both the nose and mouth.

When do I NOT need to wear a face covering / visor?

  • When you arrive at school before the line-up process
  • Once you are seated in the classroom or dining room
  • When you are out the front of the school during break times
  • When you leave school once you are out the front or out the back (depending on your departure route)
