This week the government announced further easing of restrictions as part of the route out of lockdown. The most significant change is that from Monday, 17th May pupils no longer need to wear face coverings in classrooms or communal areas, unless they wish to.
Currently and until further notice all pupils must continue to wear a face covering when travelling on our school buses and public transport unless they are exempt.
Our other control measures remain in place for now and it is important that we remain vigilant with regard to:
- Handwashing and good respiratory hygiene
- Operating in Year bubbles
- Encouraging social distancing wherever possible
- One-way systems around school
- Changes / phasing to elements of the school day
We also ask that pupils continue to complete two Lateral Flow tests per week (on Sunday and Wednesday) and report the results to NHS Track and Trace. This will continue to keep our school community safe as the restrictions are relaxed.
Thank you for your continued patience and care in this regard.
