Following the government announcement on Monday 4 January 2021 about the national lockdown, plans for Semester Two on-campus teaching have been updated.
The full government guidance is available here and means that:
- All previously planned on-campus teaching will now be delivered online until mid-February at the earliest. There will be no delay to the start of timetabled teaching.
- School placements for ITT students at all levels (Level 4, 5, 6 and PGCE) are expected to be able to continue as planned – face-to-face, virtually and remotely.
- It is important that where possible students remain at their current address – whether at their home/vacation address or in term-time accommodation – to minimise transmission of the virus, unless they meet the exceptions outlined by the government. Our student support team is in contact with all resident students to confirm their arrangements.
- Essential services on campus such as security, emergency maintenance and basic cleaning of shared spaces (with cleaning products supplied to flats for residents to use) will continue to be provided to support on-campus residents. Catering facilities will be closed.
The government is requesting that students remain at their current address, and they have advised that they will review this decision in mid-February. However, the guidance recognises that some students may not be able to remain at their home/vacation address for a variety of reasons including lack of access to study space, for mental health reasons etc, and may need to move back to their student accommodation. Similarly, other students may have remained in or returned to their term-time accommodation after the festive break. In these instances, students should contact email@example.com before they travel and are asked to book two lateral flow tests three days apart as soon as possible, and minimisinge social contact until a negative result has been confirmed. If students don’t get tested, they should self-isolate for 10 days.
We will continue to provide a full range of support services to students online, including one-to-one appointments and access to mental health services, and our Student Support team is available with extended opening hours from 9.00am – 10.00pm, seven days a week.
In terms of academic support, we appreciate how challenging these circumstances have been for our students, particularly during periods of national lockdown. As such we have introduced a Safety Net Policy to help ensure that our students are not disadvantaged by the pandemic and are able to achieve their academic goals, whilst protecting the value of their degrees.
