Dear Royal Central School of Speech and Drama,

I would like to make an FOI request for information on the financial cost of procuring new equipment and consumables in response to the global coronavirus pandemic.
In particular, information on the unit, quantity and total cost (or any two of the three if all three are not available) of:

1. Hand sanitiser and the dispensers/stands for hand sanitiser
2. Signs and floor decals (for example, directional and social distancing)
2. Custom-printed lanyards (compared with the typical cost for a standard intake)
3. Coronavirus ‘door handle’ opening key-rings
4. Face coverings, masks and gloves
4. Custom-branded masks and face coverings to be distributed to students and staff
6. ‘Zoom trolleys’ used for remote learning
7. Zoom or other digital learning platform charges taken up during the pandemic period (since March)

Yours faithfully,
James Brown
