Playing Your Part Toolkit


What is Playing Your Part?

A campaign running in the first term to encourage everyone in our Royal Holloway community to play their part in the time of coronavirus. 

What are the aims?

  • Highlight the importance of following pre-existing guidance issued by the government and Surrey County Council
  • Reinforce a sense of community and respecting others
  • Highlight the measures the College has put in place to keep our community safe 

Playing Your Part Toolkit

To enable schools and departments to create your own Playing Your Part content, we have gathered together the resources below. By using the below, it will enable you to demonstrate how your school/department is playing their part, by highlighting the changes that have been implemented to keep our community safe.
