Updated DofE guidance on wearing face coverings in school from 14.09.20

Having reviewed the current regional and local situation and taking account of the most recent Public Health data, we are writing to strongly advise that with effect from Monday 14th September, all staff and pupils in secondary schools should wear face coverings at all times except when in the classroom or when eating and drinking.

We are aware that some individuals may be exempt from wearing face coverings.

We would like to stress that this is a precautionary measure but one we feel is essential to adopt at this time.

Information will be put on the ERYC website and through social media to support this messaging.


We are often faced with having to respond to the situation as swiftly as possible to help keep our communities safe.
