Re: Wearing of face coverings at school (secondary)
The Welsh Government has updated its guidance on the use of face coverings in schools and on dedicated school transport for year 7 and up.
To reduce the risk of transmission amongst parents and relatives, please wear masks when visiting school, and at drop-off and collection areas. Maintaining clear social distance at the school gates will also reduce risk and set a good example to pupils.
Along with regular hand washing/sanitising and social distancing, this will reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 at school as far as possible.
Please follow these guidelines and encourage your child to follow theirs too. They have been made stronger to keep you and your families as safe as possible. They are based on new advice from Welsh Government’s Technical Advisory Group, as we learn more about the way COVID-19 is transmitted. If your child is exempt from this guidance then we will need to know this.
Thank you for your help in doing all we can – together – to keep ourselves and others safe.
