If you feel unwell

Self-isolate if you have a temperature; do not come to the centre. Students and staff who feel unwell at Ipswich Tuition Centre must report it and may be asked to go home. More advice can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19

Students who miss lessons because they feel unwell will be offered replacements when they are well enough to return.

Prevention

Handwash on arrival; all students required to wash their hands for 20 seconds (using soap and handtowels).

All students will be asked to work 1 metre apart where possible.

Extra tissue boxes will be put out as everybody should only use tissues once (and wash hands afterwards)

Students should bring their own equipment (pens, pencils and calculators) where possible and keep it clean. Wipes (over 60% alcohol) are available in Ipswich Tuition Centre for cleaning of equipment.

Stay in touch

Fresh information will be posted on our website and Facebook page, so please check these before each tutorial. Also you can contact Matt on 01473 23375 or matt@ipswichtuitioncentre.co.uk

Parents of unwell students will be contacted by telephone immediately, we’d be grateful if you can confirm your phone numbers by emailing them with the student’s name to info@ipswichtuitioncentre.co.uk

School closures

Individual headteachers may decide to close their schools (whilst others remain open) or the health authorities may ask all schools in Ipswich to close (as they have done in Ireland). If possible Ipswich Tuition Centre may remain open during school closure, but we will always closely follow the advice of the health authorities.

If students are isolated at home then Ipswich Tuition Centre will try to give tutorials remotely via Skype or Facetime. We will also try to provide worksheets and computer resources for students to learn at home.

Cleaning

Cleaning takes place daily before the students arrive for tuition. We are using cleaning products with over 60% alcohol content to clean all desks and surfaces including:

  • Mice, keyboards, computer screens and headphones
  • Calculators
  • Door handles
  • Taps, toilets and sinks
  • Bins are emptied of tissues daily with rubber gloves.

Director, Ipswich Tuition Centre
