Absences should be reported each day, preferably before 10am.
The college’s reporting response to student absence from lessons is via a text messaging system, which is designed to inform you if your son or daughter misses any college commitments. An automated text will be sent to your agreed mobile number after 1pm on any day where a commitment has been missed that morning and also 6pm when a commitment has been missed that afternoon (if we have not received contact from you before the lesson begins to explain the absence.)
You are welcome to contact the college, following receipt of a text, where routine information, e.g. which lesson/s your son or daughter was absent from, can be provided by the student's Personal Tutor.
What to do if you or another person has tested positive for COVID-19
Following NHS guidance, should you test positive for COVID-19:
- and are 19 and over, please stay away from college for 5 days, this starts from the day after you did the test.
- and are aged 18 or under, please stay away from college for 3 days. This starts from the day after you did the test.
Children and young people tend to be infectious to others for less time than adults. If well and do not have a temperature after 3 days, there’s a much lower risk that you will pass on COVID-19 to others.
