Case launched: Stop masks in schools – please support it but do not wait for it. Still send your letters. They are working!
Schools can insist children wearing masks or face covering in the name of Covid.
Health and safety law did not change with the arrival of Covid (SARS-Cov-2). We are providing free to parents to download for personal use (though we have a donate button) draft letter to use to send to your child’s school and your local authority. It asserts the right of yours and all children at the school not to wear any mask and demands immediate action from the school.
Get a cup of tea. The letter sets out all you, the school and its lawyers need to know about the law and school policies regarding masks. Share it with everyone you know.
The letter is drafted for local authority schools in England but the substance of it will apply equally in other parts of the United Kingdom and to private schools and academies.
The letter is also a formal and detailed ‘letter before action’ of the sort solicitors would send before start Court proceedings. Using the letter does not oblige you to take any further action. However, if schools and authorities do not respond as demanded, it may allow proceeding to be started quickly. This is important since mask policies are being introduced quickly.
