- We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and shared the results with all colleagues.
- We have implemented college-wide cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in line with current government guidance.
- We have taken all reasonable steps to support both our staff and students to work from home.
- We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance on the college site.
- Where colleagues cannot maintain a 2m distance, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk.

COVID-19 Lateral Flow Testing
We encourage staff and students to take part in regular lateral flow testing to help reduce transmission in our community. It is advised that tests are taken twice per week, on a Sunday and a Wednesday. For instructional videos on how to carry out your lateral flow home test kit, please click here.
Students can collect home testing kits from the LRC. Staff can collect home testing kits from reception.
If you are 18+ and are in a household, childcare or support bubble with someone who works or is a student at a primary school, secondary school or sixth form college you can order a lateral flow home test kit.
Please note: These kits are for asymptomatic testing only, if you cannot get a test from your workplace. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or have been told to self-isolate, please stay at home and book a test via https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
The NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is now open to everyone aged 18 and over. With many students now eligible, the NHS nationally has asked for our support to help get the message to students and get them protected as quickly as possible.
The NHS is putting on over 300 additional vaccination centres, many of which will be operating on a walk-in basis, allowing students to get their first dose quickly and easily. The full list of walk-in vaccination centres can be found by clicking here.
COVID 19 Support for English and Maths GCSE: 16-19 Tuition Fund – updated January 2021
The college will provide individual and small group (up to 5) support sessions for students who do not yet have Grade 4 in English or Maths GCSE. These sessions will supplement the classroom teaching and enable students to have more personal feedback and help with their preparation for GCSE exams. This support is funded by the Government.
Support will be taking place online while the college site is closed. Students will receive support individually or in small groups (up to 5) using the breakout rooms in the Teams channel. If you would like to know more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
