Updated guidance on the use of face coverings in education from GOV.UK:
On 21 August, the World Health Organisation (WHO) updated their advice on when children over the age of 12 should wear face coverings. The WHO now advise that “children aged 12 and over should wear a mask under the same conditions as adults, in particular when they cannot guarantee at least a 1-metre distance from others and there is widespread transmission in the area”.
As a result, the government has revised the guidance on face coverings for staff and children in Year 7 or above in England. From 1 September new advice will apply to the use of face coverings by staff and pupils in school years 7 or above and learners in further education in England.

School Trips Update see information below:
Click the link for: Trips Update Summary
For trips cancelled requiring an insurance claim:
We are in regular contact with the Lincolnshire County Council insurance team who are doing everything they can to ensure that, where relevant, we receive reimbursement as soon as possible to allow us to refund families any monies paid. They have advised, however, that refunds may take several months to process. Please be assured that claims are being submitted where appropriate and LCC are being very supportive at this time. As soon as we can, we will process all necessary refunds.
For trips and activities where an insurance claim is not required:
There are currently limits on the number of refunds which can be processed at any one time on ParentMail, but we will ensure any refunds to be processed are completed as soon as possible.
For those trips still under review:
We are liaising closely with the travel providers and the Lincolnshire County Council insurance team so that decisions can be reached as soon as possible. Even where it is looking very unlikely that a trip will be able to go ahead, we need to ensure everything is in place in order to reimburse parents before approving a cancellation.
In the interim, please continue to make any necessary payments towards your child’s trip. The school must continue to pay travel providers in line with our booking agreements with them. Failure to do so could affect any reimbursement or insurance claim should the trip be cancelled. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time.
