We have taken steps to become COVID secure

Distancing

We have promoted social distancing with both on street signage/bollards as well as indoor signage throughout all of our campuses

Hygiene

Hand sanitisers have been placed throughout our campuses and use is required when entering reception

Room Limits

We have introduced limits on the number of people in any room at one time and have provided clear signage/reduced the number of seating

Cleaning

We have increased the number of times our buildings are cleaned to include midday clean and end of the day clean - every day. As well as ensuring focus is on disinfecting common touch points

Personal Safety

Visitors, staff and students will not be allowed to enter the premises if they are displaying symptoms of Covid-19

Risk Assessment

We have conducted risk assessments based on the government guidelines and shared with all staff
