Risk Assessment document for return to school in September 2020

Last updated - 11:45 Monday 16th November

The following document outlines the return to school and risk assessment from September 2020. All parents and students are required to read this document before returning to school in September.

 


Use of face coverings on school transport

16:00 Friday 4th September

Please see the following advice updated by Wiltshire County Council

Where your son / daughter can, they should wear a face covering if they are over 11 years old whist on school transport. There is no requirement for primary aged pupils or children who are exempt to wear one, although it is strongly recommended. If travelling by public bus a face covering must be worn if your son / daughter is over 11 years old.

It is the responsibility of the parents and students to make sure they wear a face covering. Drivers are not responsible for enforcing face coverings, neither are we encouraging them to challenge students.

Please have a closer look at the FAQs on our website for more detail regarding home to school transport.
