Arrangements for students linked to the Government roadmap out of lockdown, March 2021

On Monday 1 March, we emailed all students with an update following the Prime Minister’s January announcement about a roadmap out of lockdown. Please click here to read that message.

The arrangements for specific groups of students for the remainder of Term 2 (until Easter 2021) can be found by clicking the headings below:

Change of dates to Term 3

The summer term / term 3 will now commence on Monday 19 April (a week later than the previously advertised Monday 12 April) – this is in part to allow time for the college to put in place arrangements that relate to step 2 of the Government’s roadmap, which will come into effect “not before 12 April”.

The term will end a week later than previously advertised, on 17 July, but the half term break (week commencing 31 May) will be unaffected by this change.

Accessing Morley’s online delivery

We have converted much of our provision to online delivery in the light of the national lockdown announced in January 2021.

Please see this page for more information about how to access Morley’s online learning provision.

College Centres are closed to most students – please check this article if you think you may be eligible to gain access, and see the information above for updates linked to the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown announced in January 2021.

For individuals who are eligible to visit a Centre, ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We continue to work hard to maintain a safe, Covid-secure environment for our students and staff, which you can read more about here.

Following Government guidance issued in December 2020, we are implementating voluntary asymptomatic Covid-19 testing approach at our Centres.

As a consequence of more stringent national restrictions – and matching policies implemented in secondary schools – we have strengthened our commitment to the “Hands, Face, Space” policies, including requiring that face coverings are worn by all students and staff (unless they are exempt) in corridors, communal areas and – from March 2021 – in teaching spaces.

All of Morley’s Centres are registered with the NHS COVID-19 app, and we request that students download the app and check in using the QR codes displayed at all entrances.

Events

Many college events scheduled in the immediate future are postponed until further notice unless they can be delivered in an adapted form online.
