Following the government guidance regarding the use of face masks in schools, if pupils wish to wear a suitable face covering in corridors and in indoor communal areas, they may. As a middle school deemed secondary, we will be following guidance issued for secondary schools.
In accordance with government guidance, pupils should not wear face masks in lessons or in the playgrounds.
If pupils are to wear a facemask, they must ensure that they have a sealable plastic bag to place it in when not in use.
If cases increase and Redditch becomes a local lockdown area, then this guidance may change.
