Firstly, can I thank you all for ensuring that your child is continuing to test twice a week; this is clearly picking up the asymptomatic cases. In order to avoid a return to class bubbles, restricted practical lessons and segregated social spaces, we have re-introduced the need for all students to wear a face covering whilst using indoor social spaces and in corridors. In order to support this, and minimise any potential disruption to learning in the future, please can you ensure your child attends schools with a face covering in their blazer pocket (unless previously exempt) as well as a spare in their bag. Please rest assured, this is a proactive measure at present as we are well below the Government thresholds for returning to class bubbles etc.
Additionally, please ensure that your child has their own hand sanitiser, all of their own equipment as well as their own water bottle; all of which I would advise are clearly labelled.
Finally, please follow this link to see an update letter from the Local Authority.
