Information for returning to college – 02/01/2022
We are looking forward to welcoming students and staff back to college from Tuesday, January 4th.
Following revised Government guidance, face coverings must now been worn in classrooms as well as corridors and communal areas, unless you are exempt. Please remember to bring your own face coverings with you to keep everyone safe. This will be in place until the end of January and then reviewed.
Everyone also needs to complete a lateral flow test before returning to campus, and continue to test twice a week from then on. Tests were issued by the college prior to the holidays and can still be collected from reception.
If you have any questions, please speak to your tutor or contact the college.

College Covid-19 Arrangements
In response to increased Covid-19 infection rates locally, the college has reviewed its risk assessments in order to introduce additional measures aimed at reducing the transmission of Covid-19 within the college.
These new measures are in line with guidance issued by the Norfolk and Suffolk Public Health teams and will operate in a similar way in many local schools.
Face coverings are required to be worn by students, staff and visitors:
- Upon entry to all buildings
- In corridors and stairwells
- In open spaces such as the libraries, the Core and Eating House
Please ensure face coverings are brought to the College each day, except if exempt.
Whilst it is recognised that it may not be possible to maintain social distancing at all times, wherever possible social distancing should be maintained.
Should Students Attend College If Feeling Unwell?
In order to help reduce transmission of Covid-19 in College, please follow these steps if a student is feeling unwell with any cold of flu like symptoms:
- Students must not attend College if they have any symptoms which might be described as cold or flu like, this applies regardless of how mild the symptoms are. If these symptoms exist the student must take a PCR test.
- The student must not return to College until they have a negative PCR test result, or if their test result is positive, once they have completed the period of isolation notified by Test and Trace.
- If the student feels well enough, they can work/study from home whilst awaiting the PCR test result.
- If a student develops any symptoms which might be described as cold or flu like, regardless of how mild the symptoms are, whilst at College they must leave the College campus immediately and to go home and arrange a PCR test.
- The student must not return to College until they have either received a negative PCR test result or, if their test result is positive, once they have completed the period of isolation notified by Test and Trace.
- Students who have no cold or flu like symptoms are encouraged to take Lateral Flow Tests twice a week. If any cold or flu like symptoms exist, a Lateral Flow Test should not be taken and a PCR test should be arranged instead.
