Face coverings in schools – Latest public health instructions

15/09/2020 –  Please note the latest Public Health Liverpool instructions received by Mrs Piercy today regarding face coverings in schools:

Essential use of face coverings

Dear Head teacher, levels of COVID-19 in Liverpool are high and increasing every day – we need to take urgent action.

It is now essential that parents and carers in Liverpool wear face coverings when collecting and dropping off their children at school.   All school staff should role model best practice by also wearing a face covering if supervising during collection or drop off.  Those who refuse or cannot wear face coverings should maintain social distancing of at least 2m from children and other parents/ carers.

We thank you in advance for ensuring greater levels of safety in your school and our communities.

Many thanks,

Matthew Ashton (Director of Public Health Liverpool City Council)

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and our school open.

Childwall Abbey School is a Local Authority specialist secondary school for pupils with Complex Learning Difficulties, aged 11-19.  We are located in a beautiful part of the south of Liverpool and have thriving links with our local community.  Our aim is to provide quality education, for pupils who have a wide variety of learning difficulties, often including Autistic Spectrum Disorder.

At Childwall Abbey, we know that all our pupils can achieve, if they are able to experience a curriculum, learning environment and support, which meets their individual needs.

Our Mission Statement underpins all our practice in the daily life of our school.

We aim to be:

“A calm, safe and welcoming place in which to work and learn.
A place where everyone supports each other to achieve.
A place we enjoy coming to each day.”

At Childwall Abbey, we understand the importance of working closely with parents, carers, governors and many other agencies, to develop independence and self-esteem in all our pupils. Pupils are encouraged to develop skills for adult life, to achieve nationally accredited certification, to have opportunities to learn outside the classroom and to become respectful, active and positive contributors to the wider community.

I hope you find our website useful. Please contact school if you require any further help or information.
