We have identified 402 students that meet the Government’s criteria for vulnerable (including some that are close to meeting that criteria).  These students are all invited to attend College to receive support when accessing their on line learning.  This will not be available during the Easter break but telephone and email support will be ongoing through the Safeguarding and Student Advice Officers and through Study Plus.

Web filtering continues to be in place during this period.
