Reducing the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19

Guidance Image

On April 1st 2022 the government removed all coronavirus restrictions in England. However, COVID-19 continues to be a virus that we learn to live with and the imperative to reduce disruption to the education of our students remains.

Our focus is on ensuring baseline infection prevention. This will not necessarily stop infection spreading but aims to interrupt the cycle of infection so that transmission of infection is reduced overall. The measures are:

  1. Ensuring good hygiene for everyone.
  2. Maintaining appropriate cleaning regimes.
  3. Keeping occupied spaces well ventilated.
  4. Vaccination of those eligible
