Face Masks: Parents must provide all students with masks to wear on transport and in shops.Posted on: 16th Sep 2020
We have noticed that many students do not have their own face mask. They must have them to go on public transport and in shops.
Please can you provide your daughter/son with a mask to use in shops and on public transport. All students have watched a safety video in school on how to use them.
We have noticed that on the 155/249/355 route on Balham High Road that many buses are not stopping for pupils and bus drivers have indicated to the staff that they will not open the doors to students as they are not wearing masks.
We have staggered the departure time of pupils so that we can keep year groups apart and also to alleviate pressure on the transport system. However, if pupils are not let on the buses this in turn means that we have a long queue of pupils who are still there when the next group of pupils leave school.
Despite the promises of many designated 'School Buses' we have not seen any on the routes that serve the school in the afternoon. We are writing to TfL about this.
Thank you for your support with our new routines. Since I emailed on Friday we have noticed students are much better at coming in at the right time and not too early.
