Keep your family safe by reading the national guidelines on COVID-19

Wearing of masks in school

Students will no longer be required to wear face coverings in school from 17 May.

Masks for staff and visitors are, however, encouraged in communal places such as corridors, where social distancing cannot be adhered to. If you choose to wear a mask, you may still do so. All other control measures remain the same.

Read about face coverings on the website.
