May Half Term Update 22/05/20
Dear students, parents and carers,
We hope that you and your family are safe and well.
Following on from the Government announcement regarding the possible opening of schools and colleges, we wanted to update you on the College’s position and what changes are being made to work towards reopening the campuses.
For the time being, the College will remain closed for most students. We ask that students continue to complete their work through our online systems Solar and Microsoft Teams.
Our Health and Safety team have started working on a plan for a possible phased reopening from Monday 1st June, looking at the practical work needed to ensure the college campus is safe to reopen.
We would like to reassure you that any reopening will only be done when we are clear that we can provide a safe learning and working environment for students, staff and all our families.
We are not expecting to be able to run a normal college timetable or campus until the autumn term at the earliest. Our tutors are working hard to continue to develop new and innovative ways of learning through our online learning platform Solar and providing virtual contact through Microsoft Teams.
All tutors and support staff are still working remotely to help guide, support and advise students through this time of uncertainty and would encourage any students who need extra support to contact our Programme Management team through Microsoft Teams.
Head of Riverside College
