Safety on Campus
Safety remains our highest priority and we’re working hard to make sure that campus remains a safe place to learn. This means that there will continue to be safety measures in place across campus for the foreseeable future and we’ll also be inviting all students and staff to take part in our testing programme.
While we will reopen for all of our students, student timetables will continue to be a blend of on-campus lessons and online teaching over the next term. This will reduce the numbers of students on campus at any one time but means you can still benefit from time with tutors, classmates and fantastic facilities, while staying as safe as possible.
We are continuing to follow all of the available guidance and we have extensive safety measures in place on campus, including:
• All students and colleagues will be required to wear a face covering in ALL indoor settings, including lessons, unless medically exempt
• All lessons will be subject to social distancing wherever possible
• One-way only systems will remain wherever possible and lifts restricted to one person use
• All students and colleagues will be invited to take part in our testing programme to prevent asymptomatic spread of Covid-19
• Students and colleagues MUST NOT attend campus if they are displaying symptoms, or live with anyone displaying symptoms of Covid-19.
If a student, or someone in a student's household or support bubble experiences symptoms, students SHOULD NOT ATTEND campus.
If students develop symptoms they should self-isolate for 10 days before returning to campus and get tested wherever possible. They should not return to campus until they receive a negative test result or their isolation period has finished.
If someone within a student household or support bubble develops symptoms, students should self-isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms or wait for the symptomatic person to receive a negative test result before returning to campus.
Full guidance on this is available on the NHS website here.
