Face coverings - update 27th AugustPosted on: 2020-08-27
The Bourne Education Trust has taken the proactive decision to ask staff, students and visitors to its schools to wear face coverings. The Matthew Arnold School is in full agreement with this decision and a letter has been sent to parents today with the full details and rationale. Face coverings will be required in all communal areas and corridors (with some discretion) but not in classrooms or outside areas. Face coverings may be homemade or bought, reusable or disposable but should be as plain as possible and not carry any advertising or messages/images which might be controversial.
The risk assessment has been updated (28.08.20) to include these measures.
