Dear students, parents and carers,
As I am sure you are aware, Gateway Sixth Form College has been closed to students now for a number of weeks. Learning and support has continued through various online and remote learning methods and has been supported via email, text and telephone in order to keep everyone safe and students making progress in their learning.
In keeping with our commitment to follow Government advice throughout these uncertain times, the College will seek to provide some face-to-face contact for a number of our continuing students before the Summer break. This will take place from 22nd June onwards. Teachers and Tutors will be helping to identify any students who are in need of additional face-to-face support and we will then contact those learners directly. We expect this to be for a small number of students as the vast majority have continued to be well supported and to engage with Tutors and their online learning.
We are continuing to monitor central guidance and developments with the virus, locally and nationally, and are working together to plan for a safe enrolment and for what teaching might look like in September. The safety of all members of our College community remains our top priority.
Continued Safeguarding during Gateway College closure
Whilst the college is closed it is important to reassure our students and parents that we will continue to monitor the health and wellbeing of our students.
During this period, teachers and tutors will stay in contact with the groups they teach. Students have been issued with guidance by the Schools Team outlining the safe ways to contact staff. It is important that students are able to contact teachers and tutors with particular questions, and should expect staff and tutors to respond within a reasonable period of time.
If you have Safeguarding concerns during the shutdown period please email email@example.com to disclose your concerns, or call one of the following Safeguarding numbers for advice and guidance from a member of the Safeguarding Team:
