Update: 21st January 2021
 
Test Centre: We opened our COVID-19 testing facility on Friday 15th January for the first wave of student and staff testing. This is a type of testing / screening of asymptomatic staff and students, and testing is available for the small number of staff and students attending campus during lockdown. Getting the facility up and running from a standing start on 4th January has been a fantastic team effort and we are grateful to all our staff who have completed training and are now volunteering in the facility.
 

Update: 11th January 2021
 
External Work Placements: In light of the national lockdown and following updated guidance published on the 08/01/20, the college will minimise work placements, where it is not possible to complete the work placement from home, and follow the stay at home guidance. The college will continue to review this guidance and provide updates.

Update: 5th January 2021
 
Following the government announcement on 4th January 2021, both the Ashford and Weybridge campus are closed to most students. Lessons will be delivered remotely from Tuesday 5th January until Thursday 11th February 2021. Friday 12th February is Staff Development Day, there will be no lessons on this day. Monday 15th – 19th February is half term, there will be no lessons on these days. Further updates will be given at a later date in regards to the learning structure after half term.

Update: 31st December 2020
 
Following the Government announcement on the 30th December that Elmbridge and Spelthorne remain in Tier 4 we can confirm that all lessons will be delivered remotely from the 5th January until the 15th January. Inspire Academy and Brooks Restaurant will not be open to the public, as per Tier 4 restrictions.
 
We hope to return to the blended teaching method of remote and on-site working from the 18th January, which has worked well during the Autumn term. To sustain a safe working environment for all, we continue to remind all staff and students of the importance of wearing masks in communal spaces, of washing our hands frequently and of course respecting each other’s space by maintaining a safe distance. Together we will work through this period of the pandemic to maintain a good student experience.

Update: 30th November 2020

We can confirm that a confirmed case of COVID-19 has been recorded by the College today, relating to a student.  We have collaborated in full with the Department for Education and Public Health England and have implemented all of the precautionary measures and communications that they have asked us to.  This brings the total number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus affecting individuals who have associations with the College to twenty since the virus was first officially recognised by government in early 2020.  These figures include all cases across all three of our sites and also remote students with little or no physical presence at any site.

We would reassure all staff, students, parents and guardians that we have already contacted all individuals that DfE and PHE have required to self-isolate as a precautionary measure and that staff or students who have not received a notification are not considered to have had sufficient proximity or duration with the individuals in question or to the locational bubbles they were based in to be at any additional risk of contracting the virus and should continue to attend college.

We would encourage all staff and students to remain vigilant however and to isolate and seek a test if they do start to develop COVID specific symptoms.


Update: 20th November 2020

We can confirm that seven unrelated confirmed cases of COVID-19 have been recorded by the College, relating to both staff members and students spanning the period from mid-October to mid-November.  We have collaborated in full with the Department for Education and Public Health England and have implemented all of the precautionary measures and communications that they have asked us to.  This brings the total number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus affecting individuals who have associations with the College to seventeen since the virus was first officially recognised by government in early 2020.  These figures include all cases across all three of our sites and also remote students with little or no physical presence at any site.


Update: 26th October 2020

We can confirm that there have been two unrelated confirmed cases of COVID-19 relating to a staff and student member of our community and that we collaborated in full with Public Health England on 23.10.2020 and have implemented all of the precautionary measures and communications that it asked us to.  These are the fifth and sixth confirmed cases of Coronavirus that have  affected individuals who have associations with the College, since the virus was first officially recognised by government in early 2020.

Full details of what that means to our neighbouring community can be found here. There are no immediate implications to the College other than requesting that only single household groups now frequent our popular Brooks student training restaurant, however we would use the opportunity to re-emphasise to all of our interested parties the importance of adhering to our College COVID-19 rules including face covering, hand washing and social distancing. We will continue to monitor local news and keep our policies and procedures under ongoing review.
