Testing
Our expectation is that students will now be undertaking home testing using Lateral Flow ‘Rapid Test’ kits as supplied by college. Your Course manager will be issuing test kit supplies to students.


Wellbeing
We are all excited to be on the roadmap to the end of lockdown restrictions but appreciate that this recent period of lockdown has been tough for many individuals. If you want to talk to someone about your mental health, please contact Student Services in the first instance.

Safety measures                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        All our key safety measures are still in place to make our environment as Covid-safe as possible – social distancing, seating plans,  classroom management, smoking restrictions etc. We expect students to work with us to uphold the safety measures we have in place for the sake of everyone on campus and at home.

Face coverings
Please remember to bring a face covering, government guidance still states that face coverings will be required whilst indoors including in classrooms.

Transport
College transport is running as normal - remember you must wear a face-covering on the bus at all times.

Catering
Catering is available on site  - more details of opening times will be available on campus.

Absence Reporting
Students must fill in the absence reporting form (online) if they are not coming into college on one of their timetabled days, regardless of the reason.
IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THE SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19 OR HAVE BEEN IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS TESTED POSITIVE AND HAVE BEEN TOLD TO SELF-ISOALTE – PLEASE DO NOT COME INTO COLLEGE UNTIL YOU HAVE EITHER BEEN TESTED OR YOUR PERIOD OF SELF-ISOLATION IS OVER AND YOU HAVE NOT DEVELOPED SYMPTOMS
