WEARING OF FACE COVERINGS FROM MONDAY 17 MAY 2021
Please be advised that with effect from Monday 17 May 2021, students and staff at The Featherstone Academy should still wear face coverings when on corridors and at other communal times. This includes entering the building each morning and leaving the building at the end of the day; at break times and lunch times; and when the students are in their year group bubble and moving to and from the Dining Hall for break time and lunch time.
Our main priority is movement in and around the school, when it is not always possible for students and staff to maintain social distancing. Given the other safety measures in place, masks are not required in lessons and can be removed on entering the classroom. Hand sanitisers are outside every classroom and should be used as required.
The academy’s risk assessment reflects the local infection rates, not the national, which is why we are retaining some of these measures.
