Dear Parents / Guardians,

Update on arrangements – September 2021

We are very much looking forward to welcoming students back to college on Friday 3rd September and are aiming to return to as much normality as possible, however we will take caution where necessary following the Government Guidance regarding COVID 19.

With no significant changes in National Guidance over the summer break we are now able to confirm arrangements for the start of the new term. Whilst we want to reassure parents that staff and students safety remain our number one priority we are pleased that this academic year will commence with the gradual easing of some restrictions that were in place last year.

College Day & Transport

The official college start time is 9:00am and the finish time is 3.15pm. Due to the uncertainty of the current situation there will be some flexibility with arrival and departure times.

For students accessing transport, the list and contracts have been organised and are ready. If your son/daughter is on transport from September, you should have been contacted by them with the arrangements.

We ask that parents bringing in their own son/daughter arrive to the front of the college building at 9:00am. A member of staff will marshal the car park so please follow their guidance in order to keep our students and staff safe. In the afternoon we ask parents to collect at the front of college at 3:15pm.

Curriculum

We have been working hard to ensure our students are supported when they return in September and we will continue to offer our full curriculum.  Students will be able to move around the college to access specialist facilities and rooms.

Masks

As a college, we will continue to wear masks at pick up and drop off times, as well as when walking outside of classroom spaces.

Guidance does suggest that students are advised to wear a mask on transport to and from college so please send your son/daughter with a mask and they will be supported by the escorts.

We will be requesting that all external visitors to our college wear a face mask at all times.

Testing

Please may we remind all parents/carers that Lateral Flow Testing will need to recommence on Sunday 29th August, twice weekly, until further notice.

Bubbles

Students will be taught within their classes for most of the college day as normal, but there will be times during the week that bubbles will meet and this will allow students to be with their friends and to socialise. We will be continuing with the break time arrangements as we did in the Summer Term, with split break times and lunch times within designated bubbles.

If you have any concerns with these arrangements then please contact us at college.

Yours sincerely

 

Neil Bothwell & Andrew Poskitt

Welcome to our school

Woolston 6th Form College educates and supports students aged sixteen to nineteen years old who have a range of additional needs including severe learning difficulties, complex learning difficulties and profound and multiple learning difficulties.

We offer a 38 week academic year, providing a full timetable Monday to Friday from 9am—3:15pm. Our students come from Green Lane School, Fox Wood School and other schools within Warrington.

Our vision for college is to nurture and develop students’ potential and prepare them for life and potential employment. To do this we offer a range of accredited courses from Open Awards and OCR in functional skills, life skills and work skills. All students also participate in creative sessions, sport & leisure sessions and Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme all of which incorporate community learning.

A full work experience programme is designed around the interests of students and this links with the curriculum to help our students achieve their aims and targets with as much independence as possible.

On a personal note, I am enormously proud to be part of the continued development of our college. It is a privilege to work with all the students, parents, staff and governors. For me the success of the college is derived from a very enthusiastic and dedicated team of staff. We have the upmost commitment to providing the highest quality provision for all of our students and work together in a supportive, caring community atmosphere.

We welcome visits to our college, or if you have any further questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact us at woolstonsixthformcollege@sch.warrington.gov.uk or call us on 01925 811447.
