^ This student was already self-isolating due to a case in their family.
* Both students had already been self-isolating due to previous contact with individuals within the wider community who had tested positive.

What happens if someone at SCG tests positive for COVID-19?

The following actions will typically take place when there is a positive test for COVID-19 amongst students and staff.

  • Identification of close contacts within classes to ensure that they self-isolate
  • Communication with close contacts within the class to ensure that they self-isolate for the necessary period of time
  • Notifying wider college services so that necessary steps can be taken, such as additional deep cleaning
  • Liaise with local health protection teams and NHS
  • Providing guidance and support to students and staff who are self-isolating

If you haven’t been contacted regarding being in close contact with the infected person, then you are to attend college as normal.

NHS App notifications
We have had questions from students and staff about what to do if the NHS app notifies them that they need to Self-Isolate.

Everyone must follow Self-Isolation instructions provided in the NHS App; regardless of whether the College has identified them as a Close Contact or not.

Our internal tracking process is in addition to and does not replace or override instructions to self-isolate communicated through the NHS App or public guidance.

How we are supporting students
We have a range of measures in place to support students who need to self-isolate due to Covid-19.
We understand that this will be a challenging time for students and will provide them with detailed information and support throughout their self-isolation period.

This includes:

  • Ensuring that students know what to do if they have symptoms of Covid-19, and providing clear guidance on how to access an NHS test
  • Regular communication from our Covid co-ordinator and other college teams
  • Clear guidance on how to self-isolate and for how long
  • Supporting students to remain in their households, and delivering clear communications to them throughout self-isolation
  • Offering support through our Student Services team and our Health and Wellbeing teams

How we are supporting staff

We have a range of measures in place to support staff who need to self-isolate due to Covid-19, including;

  • Guidance on notifying the college if they test positive for Covid-19
  • Clear guidance on self-isolation
  • Support for staff that need to care for a family member
  • Flexibility for those who need to adjust their working hours

Suspected COVID symptoms process

This is the College’s process if a student is absent due to suspected COVID symptoms;

  1. If the student has concerns about whether they might have COVID symptoms please use the NHS 111 online COVID symptom checking service or Call NHS111 to check whether their symptoms may be COVID related before coming into College and before reporting their absence as being due to possible COVID symptoms. This will avoid unnecessary absences/missed lessons.
  2. If the student indicates that they are absent because of possible COVID symptoms they may be contacted and asked to confirm some relevant information needed as part of the College’s COVID measures.
  3. Students must let the College know the date of their test once booked and the result of their test as soon as possible. If their test is delayed, please also let us know.
  4. If the student has indicated that they are absent because of possible COVID symptoms, then they are not allowed to return to College until a member of staff (normally our COVID Tracker) has confirmed by e-mail that this is appropriate. If they return to College without first obtaining this confirmation, they may be subject to disciplinary measures.
