We are taking additional steps to safeguard our pupils, staff, and parents. To do this we are acting in accordance with all NHS and Public Health England advice, as well as Department for Education guidance for schools.
Wirral WRAP and Forte are open as normal. Staff, young people, and children must stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading an infection to others.
We continue to take advice, protect our students, our communities, and our colleagues. Above all, we are following advice from Public Health England.
With that in mind, we want to keep you updated with information on some of the steps we have taken so far and continue to take.
- Students are advised that in line with legal guidance, facemasks must be worn on public transport and in taxis.
- Students may continue to wear face coverings in classroom situations.
- Students are strongly advised that students wear masks in communal areas and while moving about the building.
- Plain facemasks are acceptable.
Other advice :
We are operating social distancing on site for staff and students.
We have increased the frequency of our cleaning, paying particular attention to the surfaces that students, colleagues, and visitors touch most regularly.
We’ve added more hand gels and reminders to students and colleagues about how to maintain the highest hygiene standards.
We’re being extra cautious in terms of any students or colleagues showing signs of illness, isolating where necessary and following advice from schools, the local authority, central government, and Public Health England.
Finally, we’re in constant contact with all relevant authorities to make sure that we continue to do everything we can.
