Face Coverings are Mandatory
The DfE and Public Health England, updated their guidance on the use of face coverings within education :
When an area moves to Local COVID Alert Level High or Very High, pupils in Year 7 and above and all adults working with them, should wear face coverings when moving around the premises, outside of classrooms such as in corridors and where social distancing cannot be easily maintained. They do not need to be worn within class, outside on the playground or when eating lunch.
To reiterate, face coverings should not be worn in class – only when moving around the building.
As of today, ALL at King’s Oak should wear a face covering in communal areas.
