Parents and Carers Guide: What to do if someone has symptoms of COVID-19

City leaders have come together with a strong message for us all – 15th October, 2020

Statement from NHS/ Public Health England:

We know that students have already missed a lot of teaching time this year and understand that it is important to find the balance between identifying everyone who may be at a genuine risk of developing infection while not asking students and staff to self-isolate unnecessarily.

The time when people who have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) are infectious to others is from 2 days before the onset of symptoms to 10 days afterwards (or from 2 days prior to the date of their test to 10 days afterwards if they have had no symptoms).

Only people who came into contact with an individual who has had a positive test result for coronavirus (COVID-19) during this time need to be advised to self-isolate.

Welcome to Home Learning

This page will provide you further information if your son/daughter is having to access their education from home due to COVID-19 or any other underlying health conditions.

The work your son/daughter will be completing at home is in line with the sequenced curriculum that would have been taught, if they had been in the College.

Each subject area is using a learning platform to set the work remotely, further information about this can be found below.

If any parent/guardian finds their child having difficulties in gaining access to the work, they are to contact Peter Phillips at

If there are any issues surrounding the work that is being set, parents/carers must contact their child’s Progress Manager who will direct their concerns to departmental areas.

Whilst students are at home, it is advised that they try to adhere to the timetable they would ordinarily follow during the College day. However, due to many circumstances, we appreciate that this cannot always happen and to alleviate any further anxiety students may complete the work set over the course of the week.

Please click on the link below for your child's year group to find work.
