Message to Parents and Carers – Update

Dear Parents,

Following on from my message on Tuesday, I wanted to clarify that the advice from Public Health England with regard to the outbreak of COVID 19 (coronavirus) has not changed and as a college we will continue to follow this published guidance. Devon County Council have put together an on line portal which provides links to the latest information about the coronavirus.

The portal, which can be found at https://www.devonnewscentre.info/coronavirus-advice-from-public-health-england/ makes navigating the guidance that is being published a little easier. As is always the case, it is essential that we all do what we can to promote good hygiene. Something we have been discussing with our students this week during their IAG lesson. The resources we have been using to do this can be found on student class chart accounts.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and take any action that is advised by Public Health England and the Department for Education. In order to ensure we can communicate any messages accurately we will be sending home next week the contact details we have for parents with students who attend Bideford College. Can I ask that you check and return to us this information as we understand that these can change during the year.

Wishing you a good weekend.

Dr C Ankers

Principal
