We are taking a phased return approach to inviting students back onto campus. This started with onsite lateral flow testing for 16-18-year-old students.

Phase 1: week beginning the 15th March
14-16 year old
16-18 year olds and adults on study programme courses

Phase 2: week bginning the 19th April 2021
Supported learning students

Phase 3: to be agreed on a course by course basis
Apprentices and some adults on practical courses

Phase 4: week beginning 19th April, week after the Easter break
Discrete adult classes

Each group of students will receive details about their return to campus from their course leader who will confirm timetables and next steps.

The Government has issued clear guidance on the return to campus that includes the need for all staff and students to wear face coverings at all times.

- There are very limited exceptions where it will be permissible for someone to NOT wear a face covering.
- Any request to NOT wear a face covering will need to be considered by the student’s Head of Faculty and the College Health and Safety Advisor.
- For the safety of our staff and students mask wearing will be rigorously enforced.
- We expect all our staff to be treated respectfully at all times and require all those onsite to follow the COVID-19 safety rules at all times.

We have also received guidance on how we will be awarding qualifications this year and will be able to explain what this means for individual courses shortly.

We will be doing all that we can to support our students to achieve their qualifications as planned this year.


During lockdown
During lockdown, all students (except vulnerable students, those with an EHCP, or children of key-workers) will learn remotely. Learning consists of a mixture of live delivery with teachers and work set for students to complete, either independently or as part of a small group of students. 
 
Normal timetables will continue to be followed, with lessons starting with live delivery. 
 
The majority of learning is delivered by teachers using Microsoft Teams, with a minority of staff using Google Classroom. Our VLE, Moodle, is also be used to complement these platforms. Teachers have informed students on how their learning will be delivered. 
 
Students need the Microsoft Teams app on their own device: guidance on how to do this can be found here: Getting started with MS Teams. It is important that all students  attend their normal timetabled lessons and are familiar with our Digital Code of Conduct
 
Assessment arrangements vary across different curriculum areas and have been communicated by teachers. Specific arrangements have been made for students studying on courses which require specialist equipment in order for learning to continue.
 
If students are struggling to access online lessons due to lack of device or WiFi, or a lack of study space, they should contact their LDC or programme leader who will be able to provide support. 
 
ALS support continues to be available for students with a specific learning need.

We are commited to supporting students to ensure that everyone achieves their qualifications. We recognise that this is a very difficult time for many and want people to know that we are on hand to provide support with classes, health and well-being, access to IT and our financial bursary fund. Please use the contact details below if you would like support with anything - we are on hand and able to help.

During the pandemic we are providing additional support, in the form of small group tuition, for 16 to 19-year-old students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been impacted.

This has been made possible through the 16-19 Tuition Fund  and this is being used to mitigate the disruption of learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). The groups will be no more than 5 students.

To adhere to current guidance if you, or someone that lives with you, displays symptoms of Covid-19 we politely ask you not to attend the College.

If you are visiting the College we ask that you wear a face covering, wash your hands regularly and use the hand sanitiser provided at stations throughout the College.

Face coverings must be worn (except by those who are exempt) by staff, visitors and students when entering College buildings and in all shared indoor spaces.

This means in classrooms, communal spaces, corridors, offices, meeting rooms, research laboratories and workshops and the library, with the following exceptions:
• When alone in single occupancy offices
• When eating or drinking

Even when using a face mask, you must adhere to social distancing rules at all times.

The World Health Organisation has a good YouTube video on How to wear a fabric face mask so please do take a look and make sure that you are doing all that you can to protect yourself.

As a business, we have conducted a company-wide risk assessment to ensure we cover and manage all risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.

The risk assessment and any control measures associated with it, will be reviewed and updated on a regular basis.
