There have so far been no cases of coronavirus infection of any staff or students in the college.
Many parents and carers of our college students have already taken the decision to self-isolate their child due to concerns about the possibility of infection.
We have 9 members of staff in college who are absent due to advice about self-isolation or childcare related problems.
Most of our students have health and medical issues and are at the highest risk according to the Department of Health. Their safety and health is our priority, we have followed government guidelines and have assessed each student, with the support of the colleges medical staff and have taken the decision to close the college to all students from 3.15pm today.
Learning packs have been collated by the teachers and will be sent home today. College Key Workers will carry out regular safe and well checks on all students by telephone on a regular basis, whilst the college is closed to students.
All staff who are able to will remain in college, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or need any advice:
