Please wear face masks on the school run from Monday.
Along with other schools, we are recommending that parents and carers wear face coverings when they pick up or drop off their children at school from Monday. This is as an added preventative measure to help stop the spread of Covid-19 at a time when cases are rising quite dramatically in the North East. We want school to be as safe as possible for everyone and for education not to be disrupted.
We recognise this may not be possible for every parent, and it is a recommendation only, but we would encourage this as a sensible step to help minimise transmission in instances where social distancing could be difficult.
Could all parents ensure social distancing and minimise any crowding or gathering at school gates.
