Limiting access to protect the health of students and residents
To protect the health of our residential students and long-term residents, National Star is now limiting access to some of its facilities.
This applies to National Star at Ullenwood, Foundation House and Elizabeth House in Gloucester, Bradbury Gardens in Cheltenham and Ledbury Road, Hereford. These sites are now considered ‘self-isolating’ households.
This is a precautionary measure taking into consideration Government advice around ‘at risk’ groups self-isolating for 12 weeks.
Only staff, visiting professionals and close family members will be granted access. Stringent infection control measures are in place in order to enable this reduced access to continue.
Day students at National Star at Ullenwood, Mamhilad and Hereford may or may not be considered in a COVID-19 ‘at risk’ group.
Parents and carers in Hereford and Mamhilad will be asked to make an assessment for their own sons and daughters. Any Hereford or Mamhilad day student identified as needing to self-isolate will be expected to do so at home and not come into college.
We are continuing to explore ways to provide learning opportunities for day students, who normally attend National Star, Ullenwood.
Adult community learning in Hereford and Gloucestershire and our private therapy service have all been suspended. StarBistro, StarGolf and StarGlamping will remain closed to members of the public for the foreseeable future.
Our priority is to keep everyone safe. We will continue to monitor the Government’s daily briefings and will update our website in the event of any change in terms of public access to our sites as well as our learning programmes.
