Does my child need to wear a face covering when they attend school?

Following the Government’s changed advice, staff and pupils in secondary schools in Leicester will need to wear face coverings in communal areas from 1 September.

This will apply to all pupils in year 7 and above who go to a Leicester City school (including those pupils who live outside the city).
If you have any concerns regarding your child wearing a face covering, please contact the school.

Public Health England has made available resources on how to make a simple face covering.
