Update on Facemasks in Schools - Wed 19th Jan 2022

The Government have advised us tonight that: 

 

“From tomorrow, Thursday 20 January, face coverings are no longer recommended in classrooms and teaching spaces for staff, and pupils and students in year 7 and above. They were introduced in classrooms at the start of the spring term as a temporary measure. From Thursday 27 January, face coverings are no longer recommended in communal areas for staff, and pupils and students in year 7 and above.

This decision comes in response to national infection data showing the prevalence of COVID-19 to be on a downward trajectory. Whilst there are some groups where cases are likely to continue rising, it is likely that the Omicron wave has now peaked nationally. There remains significant pressure on the NHS but hospital admissions have stabilised, and the number of patients in Intensive Care Units (ICU) remain low and are falling.

This means it is right we remove the most stringent restrictions around wearing face coverings from education, but the virus is still with us, and continuing with proportionate protective measures remains vital to protect education.”

Exam Contingency Date 2022

The Joint Council for Qualifications and awarding bodies have agreed that they need the option to postpone an exam in the event of a local or national incident and rearrange for a later date.

 

ALL candidates must be available up to and including Wednesday 29 June 2022 should a disruption arise.
