ICMP’s key COVID-secure initiatives include:

social-distancing.pngSocial distancing – using signage and separators to create a physical barrier between people, limiting numbers in work spaces, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout campus, channeling movement in high-traffic areas through a one-way system, improving ventilation and more.

hand-sanitiser.pngHygiene – we’ve installed additional facilities so staff, students and visitors can wash and sanitise their hands when they enter and leave the college, as well as at key points around campus. 

facemask.pngFace masks – we currently require all users of our buildings (students, staff and guests) to wear face coverings when onsite.  Due to recent changes in Government Guidance for Higher Education, this now includes classrooms, performance rooms and the library. 

cleaning.pngEnhanced cleaning – we’ve increased the frequency and intensity of our cleaning, with staff carrying out deep anti-viral cleans and regularly disinfecting objects, surfaces and touch points across the ICMP campus. Cleaning now takes place during opening hours and musical equipment is thoroughly cleaned after every booking.

cleaning.pngCheck-in – students and staff must tap in and tap out of ICMP buildings each time they enter or leave, so we know who is on campus at all times and can monitor building capacity. 

cleaning.pngReporting – all students and staff are required to report positive test results to spoc@icmp.ac.uk, this allows us to ensure appropriate measures are in place to contain any potential outbreaks.

How we've made ICMP COVID-secure

In order to be certified as COVID-secure, facilities like ours must meet a list of rigorous requirements. To ensure ICMP’s COVID-secure plan meets best practice requirements, we’ve undertaken widespread research, engaged a specialist third-party contractor, and carried out an extensive risk assessment. 

Wherever we find ourselves, we’re well-prepared for whatever the future may hold and ready to adapt to any necessary changes.

We've also been working in partnership with Shield Safety Group to ensure our premises are Safe to Trade. In conjunction with Shield, we've conducted a rigorous risk assessment, self-assessment and have completed eLearning courses to ensure ICMP students remain safe on site.

We hope our commitment to remaining COVID-secure will help put your mind at ease. As an organisation we have complete confidence in the measures in place and we want you to as well. We’ll regularly review our hygiene and cleaning protocols in all spaces, and will adapt them in response to changing public health advice and risk levels to ensure everyone in our ICMP community knows they’re in safe hands.
