The current guidance.
The Government have said that from the 17th May that “the current state of the pandemic and the positive progress being made, it is no longer necessary to recommend the additional precautionary face covering measures put in place from 8 March.” They go on to clarify that this means that
● Face coverings will no longer be recommended for pupils in classrooms or communal areas in all schools.
● Face coverings will also no longer be recommended for staff in classrooms.
If there is a localised outbreak, decision-making lies at ministerial level not at school level “No educational setting should move to implement restrictive measures of the kind set out in the contingency framework without the explicit approval of DfE.”
