We are planning a phased approach to campus turn, with three phases.
Phase 1: Planning
Date: 19 July to 16 August 2021
During this phase we will be making preparations – reviewing and putting in place all those measures we need to ensure a safe return to campus. We will also work closely with line managers and staff (individuals and teams) to confirm arrangements for Phase 2.
Phase 2: Partial Voluntary Return
Date: 16 August – 20 September 2021
During this phase we will welcome those members of staff who wish to return, back to campus for 1-2 days per week. We will also work closely with line managers and staff (individuals and teams) to review Phase 2 and make final plans and preparations for Phase 3.
Phase 3: All staff return
Date: 20 September – January 2022/ongoing
During this phase we will, welcome all staff, except those who are clinically vulnerable or cannot be fully vaccinated, back to campus. This will be done further to discussion and agreement with line managers, and staff involved in essential teaching/support activities or essential research will be prioritised for return if their roles require them to be on site.
Phase 3 working arrangements will be reviewed in January 2022.
