Wearing of Face Masks in School

Dear Parents / Carers

Re:  Wearing of Face Masks in School

As you may or may not be aware there has been a recent announcement by the Prime Minster regarding the wearing of face masks in and around school.

Following discussions with our Director of Public Health and Director of Education I can confirm that we will be retaining the use of face coverings, as per current arrangements, until further notice.  This is due to cases of a new variant spreading quickly in nearby areasWe are however committed to rescinding this requirement at the earliest opportunity.

I attach a copy of the letter we have received from the Local Authority in this respect which is fully explanatory.

Therefore, for the health and safety of everyone at Philips High School we will continue to wear face masks as per our current arrangements until further notice.

I trust you understand my position.

Yours sincerely

Ms T Owen
