Facemasks in Communal Areas and in Lessons

Dear all

We have been advised by Mark Adams, Director of Public Health – South Tees, to reintroduce the wearing of face masks in communal areas and in lessons due to recent steep rise in community infections across South Tees and within educational setting; particularly the significant and rapid rise of infections amongst school age groups. This has been driven by the emergence of the more transmittable Delta variant as the dominant variant across South Tees. The reintroduction of face coverings in addition to reinforcement of social distancing and hand hygiene measures will help reduce further and manage transmission within schools.

Many thanks for your support in ensuring that your child(ren) bring a mask to the academy from Monday 5th July and wear them once inside the academy building. Masks need to be worn in communal areas, corridors and in lessons by students and staff.

Head of School
