As you will be aware, we have been working very hard to ensure our pupils and learners receive the education, support and continuity they need in very challenging times. Our staff have been incredibly dedicated and committed and this has made a huge difference. We would also like to thank you for your understanding and patience.
It is safer for everyone in the community, immediate and wider, when everyone who can be at home stays at home. We have sent materials for each learner home, and we will continue to do so. Our staff will also be in touch with every family, and we will continue to develop our education offer to support learning from home.
Please stay safe when accessing materials online. The following resources may help:

For children of key workers and vulnerable children, the Government has asked schools and colleges to continue to accommodate them on site to support the COVID-19 response and keep children safe, particularly those who have a social worker. We have been able to do this for a small number of young people, prioritising need in line with
Government guidance and our risk assessments to ensure we can run a safe service. Thank you for your understanding as we respond to the unprecedented situation facing us as a college community
