17.09.20 COVID-19 Safety Measures

Dear Parents/Carers

We are now approaching the third week back at College. It has been brilliant to welcome our new students to the College.

Over the last week, we have updated our COVID-19 safety measures at the College. The main update is the use of face coverings in communal spaces. This means that face coverings must be worn at all times apart from in lessons or outside the building. Can you please ensure that your son or daughter does bring a face covering with them to College and wears it in communal spaces. Our Head of Student Services has written to students to outline our exception process and the evidence that would be required. This needs to be with the College by the 24th of September and emailed to transition@stbrn.ac.uk.

The government have introduced new public information regarding their COVID-19 campaign called: Hands, face, Space.

Could you please make sure that your son/daughter follows this advice.


Wash or sanitise your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds. Good hand hygiene is essential for safety.


Wear a face-covering where social distancing is not possible. This is a requirement at the College in communal areas. It is a matter of choice in the classroom. If students forget to bring a face covering, they can purchase one for 50p in the Learning Resource Centre.


Try to maintain a distance from others, whenever and wherever possible. This is especially important when students are in communal areas and when entering and exiting the College.

By following the Hands, Face, Space guidance we can make a significant difference in reducing the transmission of COVID-19 and help protect students, families, friends and staff at the College.

We would also advise that students are only on Campus when they have a lesson, since this will reduce the number of students in social spaces. When on campus please can you remind your son/daughter to wear their lanyard. This helps us to identify students whilst maintaining a safe campus environment.

Thank you for your continued support.

Take care. Stay Safe, Stay well
