Covid 19


The Government guidance and advice for educational settings has significantly changed from 1 April 2022 and below is the guidance that as a Trust we are currently following:

Students with COVID Symptoms (no test)

Although there is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate, the advice is that people with symptoms of COVID-19 or other respiratory infections should stay at home. 

If people do not/cannot test but have symptoms then they stay at home whilst they are unwell, otherwise they will be in school/work. People can return to work or school when they no longer feel unwell or have a high temperature. 

Students with a Positive COVID Test Result

If a student does have a positive COVID-19 test they should try to stay at home for days after the test and return to school if they feel well enough to do so and do not have a high temperature. Household contacts of someone with COVID-19 should continue to attend school as usual.

As a College we are also adhering to the following control measures:

  • Ensuring good hygiene for everyone
  • Maintaining appropriate cleaning regimes
  • Keeping occupied spaces well ventilated
