Face Coverings

As you will be aware, Cheshire West and Chester have now moved into Tier Two of the COVID-19 system of management.  

As a result of this, it is important that we now follow the guidance issued by Public Health England and introduce the rule that face coverings become mandatory in communal areas of the school from Wednesday 14th October 2020.

An appropriate face covering includes a mask or shield.  Masks should obviously only cover the mouth and nose and we would appreciate no balaclava type masks in school.  Masks must be plain and not include logos, writing or images. 

Communal areas are considered to be:

  • Corridors
  • Queueing and moving around the canteen areas before being seated for eating
  • Transitions between lesson change overs.
