We now have record numbers of Covid cases and these are continuing to rise. We recommend that children wear masks to school to protect themselves and the rest of your family from Covid19 and other infections as we go towards Christmas. This needs to be your decision based on whether you feel your child is sensible enough to do this and on how your child feels about. We will be encouraging, rather than making children do this, as the latest research published in the British Medical Journal says that wearing a mask gives better protection than other measures such as social distancing or washing hands. As our children cannot be vaccinated it is the best protection they can have.
