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 .

Pride
Partner

At SGS College we are proudly partnered with Bristol Pride. A celebration of equality and diversity, Bristol Pride has become one of the most iconic Pride Celebrations in the UK welcoming an incredible 36,000 people in 2019.

As a community of diverse staff and learners, it is paramount that the importance of acceptance and celebration is recognised. The challenges and barriers that come with such responsibility are not to be underestimated but what is crucial is the opportunity for discussion and meaningful dialogue. With many progressive steps in recent years relating to LGBTQ+ equality, is it sometimes easy to forget that full acceptance has not been attained and many LGBTQ+ groups are not represented or acknowledged. At SGS College we continue to support and standby our LGBTQ+ communities as allies in the ongoing effort for equality.

According to a report by the UK charity Stonewall, over half of LGBTQ+ people have experienced depression, 41% of gender non-binary people self-harmed, and one in eight LGBTQ+ people aged 18-24 attempted to take their own life. Regarding medical care, 20% of trans people witnessed negative or discriminatory remarks from healthcare professionals, 14% of LGBTQ+ people had avoided seeking care for fear of discrimination, and 5% of LGBTQ+ people were pressured to access services attempting to change their sexual orientation.
