Important Update regarding the use of face coverings 

  • Face coverings are no longer required for pupils when they are in classrooms, or in communal areas. 
  • Staff are encouraged  to wear face coverings when indoors, when social distancing is difficult
  • In line with guidance on transport, pupils require face coverings for school transport to and from school, either on Plymouth College minibuses or buses of Tally Ho. 
  • Existing exemptions to wearing face coverings apply. 
  • We support any member of our school community, who wishes to continue to wear a face covering and we respect their right to do so.
