COVID-19 Visitor Guidelines

Thriftwood School & College are asking for the support and understanding of our visitors in helping us minimise the risk of COVID-19.

Thriftwood continues to take guidance from Public Health England. Taking this into account, we are now limiting access to the site to essential visitors only.

If your visit to Thriftwood is an essential one, we would nevertheless ask that you refrain from visiting if:

Along with all members of the Thriftwood community, any visitors to the School or College should wash their hands with soap and water before leaving home and once they arrive on site. Gel hand sanitiser will also be available on arrival and throughout your visit. You will need to wear a face covering throughout your visit to our school.

For the avoidance of potential embarrassment, we would also like to advise you that Thriftwood is currently operating a ‘no handshake’ policy for all members of its community.

We apologise for not being able to give you our usual warm welcome, but we must take the current situation very seriously and look after the welfare of our pupils and staff.

If you have any questions, please contact the member of staff you were due to visit.
