Precautionary Measures for Coronavirus
In preparation for a safe return to college for our students, we have set up Asymptomatic Test Sites (ATS) on site for the start of the autumn term. With the assistance of our trained staff, students will undertake two Lateral Flow tests on site, spaced 3 to 4 days apart (therefore operating a staggered start for students). This will help to identify cases of COVID-19 and prevent transmission to support a safe return to college. If you have not already provided us with consent, please click on the link to fill out the form at your earliest convenience https://trhat.co.uk/letter-covidlateraltest/. For further information pertaining to the return to college for your child’s year group, please click on the following link to access the letter that was distributed: https://trhat/co.uk/testinginformation-hc. Please be reminded that the ATS programme is only for individuals with no symptoms and it is crucial that students do not come into college if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
In addition to these precautionary measures, although not mandatory, students will still be encouraged to continue wearing face masks, maintain social distancing and perform regular handwashing throughout the day. The College are also anticipating the provision of the new carbon dioxide monitors this September launched by the government. The programme will provide sufficient monitors to take readings from across indoor spaces within the College to allow staff to identify where ventilation needs to be improved and let fresh air in, therefore removing air that contains virus particles and reducing the transmission of COVID-19.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming our students back for the new academic year.
