13. Will children, parents or staff have to wear PPE? The government guidance states that: “Wearing a face covering or face mask in schools or other education settings is not recommended” and that: “Schools and other education or childcare settings should … not require staff, children and learners to wear face coverings.” However, if an employee feels more comfortable wearing PPE (i.e. a face mask) during child drop off and collection, they will be free to do so. PPE that we already use will remain the same, as outlined in company policies: Infections Disease Control Child Food & Nutrition Intimate Care & Wellbeing If you are in a vulnerable group and concerned about this, please discuss this with your manager, or Steve Petty on 07872 063529.
