Morley Response to Government Funding Announcement Regarding KCC
Morley College London welcomes the recent announcement from the Department for Education…
Ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority.
We will continue to work hard to maintain a safe, Covid-secure environment for our students and staff this new academic year.
In line with Government and Department for Education advice, many restrictions introduced in earlier phases of the Covid-19 pandemic have been relaxed at our centres. From now on:
We will maintain the following control measures:
Many of our spaces include windows, and where mechanical ventilation is required, this has been cleaned and serviced over the summer break. And we are also systematically keeping tabs on CO2 levels.
We are continuing to make available lateral flow device (LFD) testing kits available to everyone in order that students can self-test for Covid-19 at home. Kits will be available from our centre receptions.
We ask that staff and students take these tests twice a week, at a minimum of three days apart and no more than five days apart.
If you test positive using a LFD test, this should be immediately confirmed via a Government-authorised PCR test, which should be booked immediately either online or by calling 119 and should be undertaken within 2 days.
Staff, students and pupils who had a positive LFD test result should self-isolate immediately in line with NHS Test and Trace guidance and while awaiting the PCR result. If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the LFD test and the staff member, pupil or student can return to school or college, and their close contacts can end their self-isolation.
We ask that you send positive results to email@example.com so that we can follow processes with students/staff who may have been in contact in the classroom. We will then advise based on current government guidance.
Operational guidance for further education establishments has been updated here.
