In response to the changes in government policy, the college is no longer in a position to enforce mask-wearing but we advise and recommend that both staff and students wear masks whilst on site, particularly in circulation and crowded spaces.
We feel that mask-wearing really helped us to manage the COVID-19 risks over the past academic year, and therefore we will ensure that there is a supply of masks available, along with hand sanitiser, extra cleaning and other controls to help combat the risks of COVID-19.
Student Covid-19 Safety
Many measures have been put in place to help manage the spread of Covid-19. All students should read the following information and uphold these conditions for the safety of all.
