The wearing of Face Coverings in School

Local COVID alert levels will come into practice from tomorrow, Wednesday 14th October. Rotherham has been designated as alert level ‘high’ and therefore in line with government advice schools should take additional precautionary measures.


As a result, from Wednesday 14th October, face coverings must be worn by all adults (staff and visitors) and students when moving around indoors at lesson changeover and in communal areas at breaktime. Wearing face coverings in the classroom, where existing protective measures already mean the risks are lower, will continue to be optional.
