COVID-19: Guidance for Visitors

COVID-19: Guidance for Visitors

During this period of national restrictions, we regret that only authorised visits to Bedford Modern School are permitted. If you are invited onto the School site, we ask that you please abide by the following guidelines for your own safety, as well as that of our staff and students.

Protocol for Visitors

Our core obligation is to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of employees and the safety of non-employees.

We hold the prime responsibility for ensuring the safety of our students, first and foremost, but also, and as importantly, of staff and volunteers, parents and guardians, guests and visitors, contractors and delivery services.

We are therefore implementing the following regulations to help ensure that we maintain a COVID-secure environment for all:

  • If you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 then you must not visit the School.
  • All visitors must also sign a disclaimer stating that they are not displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Tours will only take place when students are in lessons in order to manage the risk of transmission and minimise cross-contamination.
  • All visitors must sign in on arrival and give their email address and phone number to enable visitors to be tracked and traced should the need arise.
  • All visitors must follow current guidance relating to social distancing. Visitors may not enter classrooms or common rooms which are used exclusively by separate year group ‘bubbles’.
  • Visitors must wear a face covering whilst on site, and use hand sanitizer on arrival. Hygiene and handwashing precautions should be followed at all times.
  • We will record the areas which you visit during the tour, together with the names of any people you speak to while on site. This is to support the track and trace system as far as we are able.

The visitor protocol is subject to constant review
