Welcome back to the summer term
The summer term starts on Monday 19 April. For all 16-19 year old students, you can access your latest term report via the Dashboard.
Following Government guidance, students are required to wear face masks while in the College buildings; this includes in lessons and in all communal areas. The guidance is that face masks are more effective in stopping the spread of the disease so we are asking all students to wear masks. If there is a medical reason that a mask cannot be worn then the college nurse needs to be informed; please talk to your RAP or course tutor in the first instance.
We will have a zero tolerance when it comes to keeping people safe. It is really important that students still adhere to the social distance, washing hands and wearing-of-masks guidance even if they have a negative test. If students cannot abide by this guidance we will ask them to leave the College site so that we can ensure the safety of others.
If a student is displaying any of the Covid-19 symptoms, they should not attend College and should contact 119 for a test. If it is a positive test please notify email@example.com with the date of the test and the last date of college attendance. If any member of your household has tested positive, the current guidance is to self isolate for 10 days from the first symptoms or the positive test.
If you have concerns about returning to college or the requirement for testing, please contact your RAP or course tutor and we will help you.
