Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

SGS College 'Chase' learners delighted to receive a thank you letter from the Queen

Learners from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College’s ‘Chase’ department were over the moon to receive a letter from the Queen in response to their Platinum Jubilee celebration wishes.

The Chase, part of South Gloucestershire and Stroud College, provides a dedicated, self-contained educational resource in the Stroud Valleys. The main focus is on nurturing and developing young people with high support needs, some of whom may have a passion for catering, hospitality and enterprise, whilst also gaining the skills required to succeed and contribute within society.

The students created a beautiful collage of the Queen and sent her hand-written letters as part of learning about culture and celebrations. The learners congratulated and thanked the Queen and invited her to join them at College for tea and cake!

SGS College works in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council to develop exciting opportunities for independent living and employment in a variety of industries. From the moment of entry into the Chase, staff work with learners to prepare and place them in work experience settings in line with their aspirations and are committed to providing an inclusive curriculum and the emotional and personal support needed.

The Chase has a mock flat so that learners can gain confidence in independent living and learn to manage confidently within the home. SGS College recognise that every individual is unique and so each study programme is adapted to suit the learner’s specific requirements in line with their EHCP outcomes.
