Supports for Schools during COVID

Information and resources to support teachers and school leaders in responding to the pandemic.

Supporting children’s use of face coverings/masks in the primary school curriculum

School communities have been working together to keep each other safe. Since December 2021, children from 3rd to 6th class have been asked to wear face coverings/masks in school. Some of the children in your class may have been wearing face coverings/masks previously, but for many, this is new.
