Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Mar 13, 2020

Updated 20 October 2020

London is currently at Tier 2 (high) on the UK Government’s COVID Alert Levels scheme.

At this level, schools, colleges and universities – remain open.

 Ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We continue to work hard to maintain a safe, Covid-secure environment for our students and staff. 

We have strengthened our commitment to the “Hands, Face, Space” policies, including requiring that face coverings are worn by all students and staff (unless they are exempt) both in corridors/communal areas. 

As the world adapts to life with COVID-19, there has never been a more important time to learn, to reskill, to upskill or to enjoy the social and personal benefits of studying something you love.

At London Waterloo Academy, we are trying to ensure that learners continuing enjoy their lessons. Some courses are delivered exclusively online, some delivered by blended mode of study – class based combined with Virtual (live stream) lessons.

 

Updated 1 September 2020

Our plans for the new academic year in September are obviously reliant on government advice and our own assessment of what is safe for our students and staff members.

With that in mind, we wanted to let you know the specific things we are doing to keep everyone safe at LWA.

These are:

  • We have changed the class based learning to blended mode of study for the first semester of new 2020/21 academic year.
  • We are providing hand sanitiser on entry/exit to the building.
  • We have refitted the classrooms with new furniture
  • We have scheduled time for cleaning in between each lesson.
  • We will set limits to the number of people in the classroom.
  • We will require all of you to use face covering while at the academy. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay at home and contact us by phone +44 (0) 7484 014980 or email info@waterlooacademy.co.uk 
  • We will seek your feedback on what is working well and what needs adjusting in this ‘new normal’ world.

 

We’re in this together


We are calling on registered and unregistered healthcare workers, as well as a range of key roles in non-clinical areas to help to deliver essential patient care. If you are currently working, have recently retired or left the profession, apply now to support the NHS in the fight against COVID-19.

By registering today, you can help our NHS provide a ‘rapid response’ to support essential patient care. If you have an active or temporary registration with the associated professional body, are a final year student nurse and have experience working in a relevant healthcare setting, you can begin working in the NHS, rapidly. In addition to this, if you would like to pick up extra shifts on top of your existing role, or you have relevant experience, you can apply to join the NHS in one of our unregistered roles at this critical time.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) update 19 March 2020

As a result of the Government’s announcement, the Academy will be closed from Friday 20 March until further notice.
We are in the process of transferring classes to online platform. The only change in your learning experience would be relocation – from the classroom to your room, where you will receive your lessons from the comfort of your favourite seat. Classroom chair VS Home chair. As for the rest, all will remain the same – your tutor, your classmates, lesson day & time.
We will be sending out an email with all instructions on how to join the online platform on the day of your lesson, allowing plenty of time to connect and get used to the platform prior the lesson. Full support will be provided as usual.
We sincerely thank you for your co-operation and ask you to check emails, website and our social media every day for news.
