A single point of information for all students, parents and stakeholders of One Sixth Form College regarding “immediate access to remote education”.
Where a student, class, group or small number of students need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring students to remain at home, One Sixth Form College will immediately offer them access to remote education, wherever this is needed. It will be of high-quality and aligned as closely as possible with in-college provision.
The Government has set some clear guidance for students throughout January 2022.
You will recognise many of the requirements, the role of testing is, however, of increasing importance.
That is why students should continue with twice weekly LFD’s until further notice. You are then expected to report the outcome back to both the NHS and to the College using the links below:
You will also be aware that changes have occurred for self-isolation for individuals who test positive and for daily testing for close contacts, please follow the instructions as outlined in the link below:
As a further reminder, face covers will also be required until 26 January 2022 for all those who are not medically exempt. A certificate is not required but individuals can expect to be reminded to wear the appropriate lanyard inside college buildings.
We would strongly encourage any eligible students or staff to obtain their relevant vaccine as per the request from the Government, this is vital to stem the rise of new variants and to protect friends, family and colleagues. In support of this, the NHS vaccine bus will continue to visit the college to offer a “walk-in” service.
Once again, thank you. We appreciate that no one enjoys the process of being tested, but we do need a huge collective effort ensure that we can continue to deliver face-to-face learning.
In recognition of the variety of subjects and courses we offer, arrangements for remote learning will be specific to each situation – please find links below for each curriculum area. Should you require any further information, please contact the relevant curriculum manager via the contact details provided within each document.
