Creating a safe environment for learning
On Monday 13 July 2020, Morley College London will reopen its doors to the public for the first time since lockdown began in mid-March.
The health and safety of students and staff is our top priority and so we are taking a number of measures based on a thorough risk assessment of all our buildings.
These measures meet or exceed Government guidance on reopening, whilst providing a productive and safe learning environment for staff and students alike.
Many of our staff are continuing to work from home, which means there are fewer people in general around and about our buildings. This – along with smaller class sizes – is one way in which we are safely managing the capacity of our buildings to ensure there is plenty of circulation space.
For those who join us learning onsite, you will notice a few differences in our buildings that are broadly similar to those in your local supermarket. These include:
- Perspex screens in reception areas and other public spaces
- Clear floor markings to help everyone maintain social distancing
- An enhanced daily cleaning regime to ensure that learning spaces are kept Covid-secure over time
- Hand sanitising facilities throughout the building, and self-service cleaning equipment at workstations
- Washrooms that are limited to use by only one person at a time
There will also be posters throughout each college building, reminding us all of our collective responsibility to keep to the new arrangements.
