Confirmed Covid-19 cases

We have been advised by three further students that they have tested positive for Covid-19. We have informed teaching staff and students who attended their lessons and as a result, we have sent students home to self isolate.

None of these students have symptoms currently. Having spoken with Public Health England, they are satisfied that no further action is needed.

New: NHS guidance for parents of students

Confirmed Covid-19 case (17/09/20)

One of our students has tested positive for Covid-19. We have informed teaching staff and students who attended their lesson and as a result, five students are now self isolating as a matter of precaution. None of these students have symptoms currently. Having spoken with Public Health England, they are satisfied that our risk assessment and mitigation was robust and they agree that no further action is needed.

However, for the safety of our staff and students, we have made the decision that masks/face coverings should be worn in social spaces and corridors at all times.  This includes:

•           Arriving at college

•           Moving between lessons

•           Break times

•           Lunch times

Masks and face coverings can be removed in canteens whilst eating/drinking and they do not need to be worn outside.

Face coverings must also be worn on all college buses and public transport for their entire journey.

If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, please ensure you carry your exemption cards at all times. Thank you for taking the time to read this important information. We will keep parents and students informed should there be any further changes or further cases
