We are committed to providing our students with a high-quality learning experience. The majority of learning is delivered in person and face-to-face. We only use online teaching if we believe it adds value to learning. However, if government COVID restrictions are re-introduced we may have to adopt a blended learning approach.
The re-introduction of government restrictions and/or an institutional, local or regional outbreak of COVID may mean we have to re-introduce some safety measures, for example testing, mask wearing and social distancing.
Living with COVID-19
There are simple things we can all do in our daily lives that help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect those at highest risk. These include:
- Being fully vaccinated (including having boosters)
- Letting fresh air in if meeting others indoors
- Practicing good hand and respiratory hygiene
- wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds
- cough and sneeze into a tissue and then dispose of the tissue immediately afterwards
- if this is not possible, then to cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow
- wash hands after sneezing including washing your hands regularly,
- Considering wearing a face covering – especially in crowded and enclosed spaces.
What to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to study/work or carry out normal activities, you are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
Students, staff and visitors can return to their normal activities, including visiting our campus, when they feel better or do not have a high temperature or, if they have access to a LFD test kit and record a negative result.
Students are asked to report their absence online using CELCAT and to email to their Head of Discipline/Course Leader.
Staff are asked to notify their line manager and email@example.com.
