The Government has asked all schools and colleges to continue to provide onsite support for those students who are:
- Children of key workers
- Students with Education, Health and Care Plans
- Students who receive social services support
Critical, or key workers include NHS staff, police, farmers and food retail workers, who need to be able to go out to work.
Children with at least one parent or carer who are identified as critical workers by the government can send their children to school or college if required.
The College has continued to review demand for onsite provision for students with key worker parents or in vulnerable groups. As demand has dropped we have taken the decision to close campuses. As of 30th March 2020, we have one site open – Our Stapleford centre (for those students who access our SLDD provision - Learner with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities). All other campuses are closed but we have kept our Clarendon nursery open to cater for those students and children who fall into the categories specified by the Government. We are continually reviewing demand for these onsite services and will work with you to provide the best support and guidance available. We operate regular deep cleaning at these sites and have measures in place to keep students and our staff safe.
If you believe that you fall into one of the categories outlined above and need our support, please in the first instance complete our key worker survey so that we can ensure support can be made available to you.
If you are a key worker and require us to keep our college open for your student to continue to receive in-college teaching and learning support, we would appreciate it if you could let us know by completing your details on our key worker survey below.
