Safety of our adult learners

At Merton College we have put additional measures in place to keep you and our community safe.  Please read the information below so you are familiar with the precautions in place and take care to follow the rules and regulations so we can all continue to teach in a safe environment.

  • Temperature checks for all students to be carried out on arrival at College
  • Directional signs put in place so that a safe flow is maintained around the building
  • Adult learners requested to wear face-coverings in classrooms where distance is less than 2 metres
  • All staff and students expected to wear face coverings at all times outside classrooms and workshops when circulating around the College, unless they have a confirmed medical or social reason for not wearing one
  • Staff and students advised to take the stairs instead of the lift – and if they require the use of a lift, to ensure only one person at a time uses it each time
  • Staff and students advised to maintain a safe distance from others and to wash their hands regularly for at least 20 seconds
  • Staff and students advised not to attend the College if they have symptoms such as a high temperature or a persistent cough
