Update from Mr Wilding - 16th April 2021
Posted 16th April 2021
To all parents and carers.
Greetings from LCS.
I hope all students are enjoying their holiday and that parents and carers have also been able to rest and begin to see family again over the last few days.
This is a very brief update today, just to confirm that DfE guidelines on students wearing facemasks in schools have not changed, so students returning on Monday 19th April will continue to wear face masks inside the school building, including classrooms. Existing student exemptions will remain. The Secretary of State has given the date of 17th May for the next national review of the face mask guidelines, so the situation in school will continue as it is until this date, at the earliest.
A link to the latest DfE guidance for schools is below:
In my email updates before the Easter holidays, I mentioned school uniform and asked whether parents and carers could please address any uniform issues over the holidays and before students return for the start of Summer Term. As previously stated, we were more lenient with uniform than we would normally be in the period before the Easter holiday, but we would now ask all students to be correctly dressed for school, including appropriate trousers and shoes, for the start of the new term. Your support and cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.
We are looking forward to seeing all students back again on Monday 19th April, but until then enjoy the sunshine.
