A SCHOOL is forcing its 1,300 pupils to wear six masks a day in bonkers Covid rules.
The plans were revealed in an email to parents.

Dr Challoner’s Grammar in Amersham, Bucks, demands that kids change masks when moving between classes.
But with five lessons each day — and a mask needed for homeward travel — pupils must pack at least six.
There are 200 staff, so a total of 1,500 people will require five new face masks — that’s 7,500 a week.
The school does suggest washable masks but this would mean hours of extra work for parents.
Dad David Meacock, 54, fumed: “If all schools did this, I doubt the UK has the capacity to provide this many masks even if parents could afford it. If this is what’s required to keep schools safe then the reality is that it isn’t possible.
“It goes without saying that even reusable masks should also be changed each time. The only difference between the two is that the reusable one can be washed rather than being thrown away.
“Thus you’d need at least 12 washable masks at home to have six ready for one day with the others being washed — which amounts to about £120.”
The school email states: “If a student is wearing a disposable mask, this will be viable only for one journey. They will need a fresh mask for each lesson change and the homeward bound leg of their travel. On arrival, the student must dispose of the mask into a bin.”
A video made by head David Atkinson made it clear pupils not wearing masks will be challenged. The school was approached for comment.
