Letter for parents

Dear Parents and Carers,

In the light of currently changing guidance on the use of face coverings in schools, I would like to update you on the school’s current position.

This week, we will be working with Public Health England and other school leaders and provide you with detailed information about how the changes in guidance may affect our school planning. We will provide updates to you no later than Wednesday 2nd September.

In the meantime, I would advise parents and carers to ensure that your sons and daughters have a plain black or white face mask and a small plastic bag to store it in as part of their school equipment.

At present, Department for Education advise against face coverings in school. While it may still be the case that face coverings will not be used in school, it is important that all students are prepared for changes in guidance in future.

For all other information relating to the return to school, please see my letter sent on 17th July: https://www.cardinalhume.com/school-reopening-information-for-september-2020/

Many thanks for your patience and understanding at this time. We are looking forward to seeing the students again at the start of September.

Yours faithfully,

Mr. B. Robson

Acting Head Teacher
