Temporary safety measures

Dear Parents and Carers,

Further to my email yesterday, I have decided in order to keep everyone safe I am putting in place some additional protective measures for the next two weeks. This is in response to a number of positive cases amongst staff in school. As you will know, the safety of everyone on our schools sites is my highest priority.

To try and reduce the spread across school and protect pupils and staff we will be implementing the following measures form today. These will be reviewed on 30th September.

  • Masks - Staff will be wearing face coverings, if they are able, when in corridors or communal areas, except when sat to eat and drink or during a planned activity that has been agreed by the Team Leader or SLT. No face coverings are needed when outside of buildings. Please note that pupils do not have to wear face coverings whilst in school. However, they can wear them if they wish.
  • Restricted movement around school - In order to stop the risk of any virus spreading from one area of the school to another we are going to restrict movement by staff and pupils around school. I am hopeful that pupils will not notice much difference, although some activities where pupils from different areas of school mixed will not be able to take place for the next two weeks.

Over the next two weeks I will be closely monitoring the situation and will update you of any changes. I hope that at the end of the two weeks we will be in a position to remove some of these additional measures.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me ort any member of the senior leadership team.

Many thanks,


Jon Hewitt
