We are looking forward to re-opening in September and welcoming our students back to College.
We are putting safety measures in place and we will be operating the smooth running of the site a little differently. These measures will apply to our students and to anyone who visits the campus.
We will review these measures during study week against the latest Government guidance and our own assessment of risk.
Due to the social distancing measures that we are putting in place there will be less students onsite each day that we’d normally expect.
Measures we are implementing to ensure your safety will include:
Good hygiene remains a priority for us and so you’ll be asked to wash your hands when entering buildings and before eating.
How you access the site will also change and we have put in place one-way systems, no entry areas and queuing systems which you’ll need to follow.
We’ve also revised the layouts of all of our classrooms and social spaces to ensure that we maintain safe distances without impacting on your learning.
From September we will be operating our transport system on a semi distancing basis . - Find out more by clicking here.
In order to keep all our students safe and comfortable passengers will fill the bus seats from the back first and only window seats will be occupied, allowing the space required between passengers in the aisle. Standing or moving around the vehicle wont be allowed.
Face coverings will be compulsory on all our routes just as they are on public transport nationwide. Unfortunately if you do not wear a face covering you will not be permitted to travel.
Changes to our catering outlets will see the Dining Room being the main service area with the two snack bars only opening if numbers onsite exceed a certain level. You’ll still be able to access a wide variety of food and drinks.
Over the summer we’ll be inviting you to give us your views on how we structure our catering offer going forwards.
All our staff will be working from September and as such there will always be a member of our safeguarding team onsite to provide you with the support you need
During the lockdown phase we’ve been really encouraged by how well our students have engaged with our safeguarding team online and so just like your academic delivery we will be continuing this blended approach to student support moving forwards. (Student Support)
Our Student Union will also continue to play a central role in shaping how your student experience feels.
SU elections will run just like any year and we’ll soon be publicising a range of enrichment events and community activities through our social media channels to ensure that you get the most out of this so make sure you are following us on Instagram and Facebook.
At Plumpton College, the safety of our students, staff and sisitors is our top priority.
