Staff and students will be required to keep a distance of at least 1 metres and to follow hand washing and respiratory hygiene guidelines.
Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the school. All staff and students will be asked to sanitise their hands on arrival and throughout the day.
Social distancing of 1 meter between student desks will apply. Students will be assigned their own desk in their classroom which no other student will use. Many classes will contain 6 to 8 students only. Students will be required to wear masks or face coverings in class.
Class start and finish times will be staggered to ensure that not all students are in the common areas at the same time. Individual timetables will be sent to each student by email approx. 1 week before arrival.
Classrooms will be cleaned and sanitised at the end of each day. Self-service cleaning stations will be positioned in every class to allow students and staff to clean surfaces and touch points, as they feel is necessary.
Teachers will be assigned to one class group only so as to reduce the risk of contamination .
Where possible doors and windows will be left open to maximise ventilation throughout the building and to reduce the need to touch door handles.
Reception and student services will be available on an online portal on the home page of our website, to allow our existing students to safely contact Horner School of English staff and to request documents for their stay. Use this page to ask our office staff for a Zoom Video Callback OR for a document that you urgently require (without needing to queue at reception).
Staff at the physical reception office will be located behind screens and only two students at a time can enter the Reception Desk area.
