Richard Huish College can confirm two students at the College have tested positive for COVID-19, in recent days, in two unrelated cases.
By working closely with Public Heath England (PHE) and the Department for Education (DfE), the College have followed all measures, protocols and procedures in line with government guidance and are continuing to monitor the situation. All students who need to self-isolate have been notified and sent detailed guidance from PHE by email. An email update has also been sent to all students and parents who have not had contact with the affected student/s, a copy of which can be read here. We can also confirm neither students travel to college by bus.
Since the start of term the College have worked hard to develop and implement measures to protect students and staff and limit the risk of COVID-19 infection, whilst providing a full and rich programme of education for all students. By adhering to a strict set of protocols, staff can ensure disruption to learning is minimised and remote learning can continue throughout for any students who have been advised to self-isolate. The College will remain open to all students and staff who are well. If students have any concerns, they are advised to contact their Progress Tutor for support.
