Wearing of masks in school

Updated - 3 March 2022 

Staff and pupils in secondary schools and colleges will not be required to wear a face covering in classrooms. Our position is that whilst face coverings are no longer recommended, if any member of staff or student wishes to continue wearing a face covering this will be permitted with a review taking place at half term.

Read about face coverings on the website.

Please continue to check our website for updates - see the linked letters below.  Should you have any enquiries please email
