Wearing of face coverings (Primary Schools)

Dear Parents

Wearing of face coverings (Primary)


The Welsh Government has updated its guidance on the use of face coverings in schools.

To reduce the risk of transmission amongst parents and relatives, please wear masks when visiting school, and when dropping off and collecting your children.  Maintaining clear social distance at the school gates will also reduce risk and set a good example to pupils.

If you have a secondary school aged child, be aware that face coverings should now be worn by pupils in Year 7 and above in all areas outside the classroom and also be worn on dedicated school transport for Year 7 and up.

Please follow these guidelines and encourage your child to follow theirs too.

Along with regular hand washing/sanitising and social distancing, this will reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 at school as far as possible.

Updated guidance has been made stronger to keep you and your families as safe as possible. It is based on new advice from Welsh Government’s Technical Advisory Group, as we learn more about the way COVID-19 is transmitted.

Thank you for your help in doing all we can – together - to keep ourselves and others safe.


Mrs. S. A. Wright
