Covid Restriction Updates

There have been a raft of updates recently and I wanted to share.

Please ensure you are a safe distance outside of school, not attending gatherings of more than 6 and sticking to the rules. We have very good controls in school, but this relies on working with you all.

Please stay safe; Please help us stay safe.

Any rule breaking can be reported on 101. If invited to parties, that you know have more than 6- you should report this.

Under the new measures for England:

§ Office workers are being told to work from home again if possible

§ Penalties for not wearing a mask or gathering in groups of more than six will increase to £200 on the first offence

§ From Thursday 24 September, all pubs, bars and restaurants will be restricted to table service only. Takeaways can continue

§ Also from Thursday, hospitality venues must close at 22:00 – which means shutting then, not calling for last orders (in Scotland the same curfew rule comes into force on Friday)

§ Face coverings must be worn by taxi drivers and passengers from Wednesday

§ Retail staff and customers in indoor hospitality venues will also have to wear masks from Thursday, except when seated at a table to eat or drink

§ From Monday 28 September, only 15 people will be able to attend weddings and civil partnerships, in groups of six. Funerals can still take place with up to 30 people

§ Also from 28 September, you can only play indoor adult sports in groups of less than six

§ The planned return of spectators to sports venues will now not go ahead from 1 October
