COVID Update

Following on from rising covid rates in Leicestershire, the Local Authority has asked that face masks be reintroduced in all secondary schools for students and staff in communal areas. This is a sensible way to help keep students, staff and our wider community safe from covid this winter. 

Therefore, from Monday, we are requesting that all students (except those with a medical exemption) wear a face mask travelling on school transport, in corridors and when queueing indoors for food. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in keeping our local communities healthy and safe.
