Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We are following government guidance on the use of Personal Protective Equipment in school.

Staff will not typically wear PPE during the course of their normal activities in schools but may need to do so for certain activities. Teachers will show children masks and other PPE so that they understand what it is and what it is for in case they do see anyone using it.

Guidance does not recommend that children wear masks and we will not be providing any PPE for children. Should you wish your child to wear a mask, we would not prevent this but you will need to understand the practical limitations of this (e.g. when eating), especially for younger children. If a child is wearing a mask and we can see they are struggling (e.g. touching their face more often as a result), we will talk to you about this.
