These measures are reviewed and updated regularly in line with the most up to date government guidance. All of these measures have been put in place to provide you with the best and safest educational experience whilst the coronavirus is in circulation in the wider community.
Face Coverings: ‘Masks on the Move’
We recommend that students wear face masks in corridors and in busy communal areas of the college. You do not have to wear a face covering in classrooms, but you are welcome to do so. This recommendation will be monitored and kept under review, may be subject to change.
It is important that students continue to take Lateral Flow Covid tests at home twice per week and that you record the result. The College are able to supply these tests. Your tutor will advise how and when you are able to collect these tests. It is essential that the college is informed as soon as possible if your young person tests positive for coronavirus or has symptoms. You can report this at CovidAbsences@burycollege.ac.uk
