I would like to make you aware of our decision to extend the use of face coverings on corridors and communal areas for the remainder of this term. All Beckfoot schools in the Bingley cluster are doing likewise. We have been monitoring the situation in the local and surrounding areas and feel that now is not the time to change our approach.
We will continue to avoid mass gatherings in school as much as possible with assemblies, parents evenings and our Post 16 Open evening all taking place virtually up until the final week before Christmas.
Whilst numbers have dropped significantly in school, we feel that our approach is making a difference and ask that you continue to support us as you have been doing. I am so grateful that so many of you feel we are doing the right thing and for the right reasons though I am very aware that, for some, this will be a frustrating decision. As always, please do let me know how you feel.
