The wearing of protective face coverings at Clifton Community School.

Following the government’s decision to allow students and staff to wear face masks in secondary schools in England, students are free to wear face masks in school should they wish. If students do wish to wear face masks, they can be worn in communal areas such as corridors. However, current advice does not recommend that students should wear their masks in lessons and we expect students to follow this advice.

We will not be providing masks, so if your child wishes to wear one, please source disposable or washable masks before their designated start date:

● Wednesday 2nd September, school will reopen to all students in Year 7 and Year 11
● Monday 7th September, school will open to all Year 10 students (in addition to Year 7 and Year 11)
● Wednesday 9th September, school will open to all Year 8 students (in addition to Year 7, Year 10 and Year 11)
● Monday 14th September school will be open to all Year 9 students and commence full reopening

We will be in touch on Tuesday 1st September with a reminder of specific arrangements for our return to school.
