We at Sarum are delighted to be welcoming people back to College and want to keep you informed about how we’re responding to the 5 July government announcement about changes to public safety guidance from 19 July.
With the College environment, our ethic of care to students, guests and staff coming into the building in mind, from 19 July we will:
1) Maintain the cleaning regime we implemented last year, with regular airing and ventilation of gathering spaces and sanitation of high-touch surfaces.
2) Continue to request that face coverings be used when entering the College and moving through public spaces.
3) Continue to maintain some distance in seating arrangements and accommodate any special requests from event organisers for extra spacing allowances in room set up.
As we know, public safety guidance can change quickly so we will continue to monitor government advice and adapt and update as required. Should you have any concerns or queries about visiting Sarum, please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our learning programme offer a mix of online and onsite course formats. Those who live at a distance from Sarum and those with accessibility or mobility constraints have told us how much they value being able to participate in our courses online so we will continue to schedule on a regular basis.
Those who love coming to Sarum also have been vocal about their wish to come back to the College to be part of the learning community, have access to the library, to Salisbury Cathedral and the city.
We’re pleased to be working to accommodate both, with the return to onsite study days and residential courses, but also maintaining online learning that many of you have come to enjoy during the past 18 months.
