 Monday 17th May - Dr Sakthi Karunanithi, the Director of Public Health and Wellbeing at Lancashire County Council has written to schools advising that students and staff should continue to wear face coverings until 21st June at the earliest.

As a result, students and staff need to continue to wear face coverings in school and in lessons until further notice.  The design of face coverings must be appropriate for a school setting. If the school decides that they are inappropriate, then students will be asked to remove them and will be given a face covering by school for the rest of that day. If you have any concerns please contact your child's Progress and Guidance Team in school.   

Please click on the link below to read an update regarding home testing for students.
