Principal’s Update – Face Coverings

Dear Parents/Carers,

As it has been widely reported in the news, the Prime Minister has announced that a number of safety measures will be implemented across England as a result of the emerging Omicron variant of COVID-19. Please note that from Tuesday 30th November, face coverings should be worn in corridors and communal areas by students in Year 7-10, staff and visitors, unless they are exempt. They will also be required by those commuting on public transport.

We will be reviewing all plans for large gatherings between now and the end of Module 2, with the intention that these will continue with extra safety arrangements or precautions taken in line with government guidance. If circumstances change, we would like you to be aware that events may need to be cancelled or moved online.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and respond to any new published guidance as it appears.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.

E Smith
