Advice for Parents and Carers

During the coronavirus pandemic, we will be updating this page with advice and guidance for the parents and carers of students.

The Government recently asked that Colleges develop plans to reopen for some students. This is expected, subject to Government approval, to happen on 15 June. We have been working to develop plans to do this, and you can read more about these plans and how it might affect your young person on this page. If your young person has been invited to return to the College after 15 June, please click here to see an important video on actions they need to carry out upon their return.

However, any reopening of our Colleges will be very limited with few students invited to attend initially. Therefore, we are still giving the below advice for any parents and carers whose young person is not invited to return to College.

  • If your young person can remain safely at home, then we would ask that they do;
  • If you are a key worker, then we are here to support you during this period. If you have any queries about Colleges reopening you can contact your respective College via the email address or phone numbers below. If you need your young person to attend a College as you are a key worker or they are a vulnerable student, we will ensure they are able to do so. Please just make contact with your local College using the details below, and we will enable this;
  • If your young person is considered a vulnerable student, has an EHCP, or if you believe that our College is a safer environment then we will remain open to them and staff will be here to assist them.

This is an unprecedented situation, so we would be grateful for your patience. We will be working hard to ensure that your child or young persons learning is disrupted as little as possible during this period. We will continue to issues updates through this page, and via our social media feeds so please check here regularly.
