Message from Cheshire West and Chester Council

Dear Parents

We have received the below message from Cheshire West and Chester Council regarding the requirement to wear face coverings on public transport from 15th June.

Message to Parents - You will be aware that the Secretary of State for Transport has announced that face coverings are mandatory on public transport from 15th June 2020. Whilst face coverings are not currently mandatory on school contracts, Cheshire West and Chester Council has taken the decision to mandate face coverings on mainstream home to school contracts.

Face coverings will not be mandatory on Special Educational Needs contracts (or for pupils travelling to mainstream schools with a Special Educational Need). Other exceptions apply to very young pupils, those with respiratory conditions or other illnesses where a face covering is not recommended.

Parent/ Carers will be responsible for providing face coverings. The attached document you have received outlines the need for face coverings for both primary and secondary pupils, exceptions to this, what defines a face covering and how to make your own face covering.

Please ensure that pupils are aware of this requirement to wear a face covering if using transport from 15 June 2020.

Many thanks

The School Office
