Face Masks Required

We received a communication from the Department of Education at 16:05 this afternoon mandating the use of face coverings in communal spaces in schools from tomorrow (Monday 29th November).

We are therefore asking all students to ensure that they have a mask they can use from tomorrow in school until further notice. Further, staff have been told that they should ask students to wear a mask in their lessons if they feel it is appropriate given the nature of the group size, task or activity.

We would also like to reinforce that students should be wearing face coverings on public transport on the way to and from school.

As ever, our approach will be to work together for the common good and to look after our school community rather than adopt a punitive approach for any non-compliance.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us through the school office in the normal way.
