Safer College Community logo

Following the government updates, we would like to reassure you that LMC is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our whole College community. We ask that all of our staff, visitors and students take into consideration the wellbeing of their peers and colleagues. All measures (outlined below) will be in place across campus and our community provision. 

We are aware that some of our staff and learners are clinically vulnerable and may feel particularly anxious about these changes; remember, you can always call into The Hex and speak with the support teams, or your tutors, if you feel worried about any of the latest guidance. We are here to help. 

We have introduced a 'traffic light' system, informing the College community of the measures required to keep everyone safe. The traffic light system will be updated in accordance with government guidance, please adhere to this whilst on our campus. Our current status is GREEN. Read the safety measures in place on campus:

Our current Covid status is AMBER

Safety measures in place on campus

Testing: We encourage staff & students to continue to test regularly in the following circumstances:

  • If you experience any symptoms linked to Covid, including cold/flu-like symptoms; headache and fatigue etc.
  • If you are part of a household in which someone has tested positive‚Äč

Face coverings:

  • You may continue to wear face masks on campus, if you wish - this is now an individual choice rather than a requirement. 
  • If you are vulnerable due to health conditions, you should speak with your tutor about whether you wish them to wear a face covering when working with you.

Isolating: 

  • If you test positive, we advise that you do not attend college for 5 days. Report your positive result to covidresponse@lmc.ac.uk
  • You can return to College on day 6, if you feel well enough. 
  • You can continue to access your course remotely - your tutor will advise you how to do this. 

Working remotely: Student information

If you need your password resetting whilst working from home due to self-isolation, you can email Computer Services with your name, date of birth and student number and they'll reset it for you.

If you find that your financial circumstances change during the 2021-22 academic year, please contact the Student Money Team. You can apply for financial support at any time during the year and you may qualify for help with travel costs, lunches and additional course costs such as trips and uniform.

If you're aged 16-18 and receive free lunches, College will make lunch payments into your bank account for the first 5 days that you have to self-isolate, if you test positive for Covid. Let the Student Money Team know your bank details if you've not already provided them.

Our Safeguarding & Pastoral and Learning Support staff are on hand to ensure learners feel safe during these uncertain times. Please be assured that our priority is to safeguard the health & well-being of the whole College community and we will continue to follow government guidance to adapt our procedures to the ever-changing response to Covid-19.
