Safety and Hygiene precautions

Reception at the Kentwood and Poverest centres can be busy at times, especially first thing in the morning and during the first few weeks of term. A queuing system is in place to reduce congestion at busy times and you may be asked to wait for reception staff.

We ask that you arrive promptly for your class, within 10 minutes of the start time. If you are early, please wait in the café area and not outside the classroom.

Hand sanitiser is available in all classrooms, corridors and foyer.  Additional hand washing stations are situated outside room 2 at Kentwood and opposite room 6 at Poverest.

Classes are thoroughly cleaned before and after each session. Common parts of the buildings are cleaned once a day, and more often if necessary. Shared equipment such as computers, classroom apparatus and tools are cleaned by site staff, users are required to wash/sanitise their hands before use.

Additional safety precautions, relevant to your subject, will be agreed during the first session.

Please do not attend the centres if you, or anyone in your household, displays symptoms or tests positively for COVID-19. Let your tutor or a manager know immediately so we can inform your classmates.
