26.10.20: We have today notified staff, parents and students of a confirmed case of Covid-19 at St Brendan’s. Student and staff safety is of paramount importance to us. We have stringently followed government guidelines and are working closely with the Public Health Team and the college will be open after our October half term break.

Reporting Student Absences

All students should be attending college regularly and engaging with expectations of remote learning.

If a student is unable to attend college then all their absences do need to be reported correctly to college.

If the absence is unplanned (i.e. Unwell, Emergency Doctors Appointment), then preferably Parent/Carers are required to report the absence - please see the section Student Unplanned Absences.

If a student’s absence is known about in advance (i.e. University Open Day, Hospital Appointment), then the student will need to report the absence - please see the section Student Planned Absences.

If student needs to leave college early they will need to complete the correct form - please see the section Leaving College during the day. Parents will be called if a student is unwell and is making their way home. Any student that develops COVID-19 symptoms at college will be taken to the isolation room to wait for collection; parents will be contacted to collect the student urgently.

Absences related to COVID-19 please read the document below and follow the correct process. We expect to be informed of all confirmed cases, test results and possible symptoms that require a self-isolation period.
