Face Coverings in Schools

Face Coverings in Schools

Following the announcement by the Deputy First Minster on 25th August 2020 face coverings should be worn by adults and young people in our secondary schools when they are moving about the school in corridors and confined communal areas, including toilets.

This change in Government guidance is effective from Monday 31st August.

Pupils will be provided with a face covering by their school.

Face coverings should be worn where physical distancing is not possible.

The updated guidance also applies to adults, children and young people aged 5 and over travelling on dedicated school transport.

We will be working with our young people and families to ensure that there is a shared understanding of the requirement for and safe use of face coverings.

Face coverings are one mitigation within a package of measures aimed at reducing the spread of Covid-19.


We have updated our School Transport and Return to School FAQs and these may help to answer any further questions you have about this change.


If you have any specific queries relevant to individual schools, please contact them direct.
