Arrangements for January 2021

Following the announcement from the UK Government on Monday 4th January of a national lockdown, Shrewsbury Colleges Group can confirm that we will NOT be requiring students, other than those identified as Vulnerable, to attend any of the campuses effective from close of normal college hours on Monday 4th January 2021.

There is a Frequently Asked Questions section available here


Much of the detail relating to the Government’s announcement has yet to be provided to colleges and schools and therefore we are unable to answer specific questions currently, but we will share this information as soon as we have it.

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-19 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
