We could not be more excited to welcome more of our courses back into the building. While many sessions will remain online to cater for those of us still not ready to meet in person, over the next few weeks we hope to see a few more of your friendly faces back in the real world!

The government has announced that last stage (Step 4) of lockdown easing is to take place on 19th July in England. The advice is to continue to maintain some measures to reduce the chance of COVID-19 spread, with individual businesses and community organisations putting in place their own plans to comply with that advice.

The Settlement's aim is to keep everyone safe, and we are following a cautious and carefully considered approach. This builds on experience we have gained over the last few months, when many students and tutors have returned 'to the classroom'.

The following are the key measures that we will be following:

- The sanitiser stations will remain, along with our enhanced cleaning regime. We will also ensure that rooms are well ventilated (please dress accordingly!).

- We will be increasing the maximum numbers in classes and some room layouts - but will not yet be returning to full capacity.

- Masks will still be required to be worn in communal areas and in the office.

A final request to anyone visiting the Settlement: please do not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate.

In the meantime, do check out our Stage Four Covid-19 Risk Assessment for activities post 19th July.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment
