Special Measures under Covid-19

In line with Government guidelines, we have reviewed our special measures for 2022 and made relevant changes. We have a fully comprehensive risk assessment in place that we review regularly.  We ran a successful programme in 2020 and 2021 and feedback from students and tutors was that we had implemented good safety measures and they felt safe.

 

Special measures now in place:

These will be reviewed regularly in line with Government guidelines

  • We no longer follow a minimum 2 meter rule with seated work stations assigned to each student.

  • Visitors are no longer asked to wear face masks but are welcome to choose to wear one if they wish.

  • Tutors no longer wear face masks or visors unless they choose to do so.

  • We retain all visitors contact details to comply with the government test and trace scheme.  Lack of internet connection prevents us from using an NHS QR code.

  • Sharing equipment is minimised by students' bringing their own or tutors providing individual kits.

  • Good ventilation is provided and visitors are requested to bring extra layers in case the room is cooler.

  • Floors and surfaces will be disinfected before your arrival

  • Hot spots such as light switches, taps and hand-rails are carefully disinfected between workshops.

  • Two separate stations for teas and coffees will be provided with hand sanitiser available.

  • Visitors are encouraged to make regularly use of the hand washing facilities available with soap dispensers and hand sanitiser is provided. Paper towel dispensers have been installed

  • Toilet facilities are disinfected regularly throughout the day.

Food production:

  • We already have a 5 star award for our Food Safety and Hygiene  

  • Extra care is taken with regular hand washing

  • When serving, food is kept covered or a food protector is used for cake and bread

  • Trays and cutlery are given to each participant to avoid any handling
