White Bridge College
At White Bridge College we aim to provide a range of learning opportunities which will excite and engage pupils and motivate them to achieve their full potential.
Our goal is to ensure that pupils are best prepared for success in the next phase of their life, whether that is education, employment or training.
We have been advised that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the WHITE BRIDGE COLLEGE.
We have carried out a full risk assessment and identified all those who have been in close contact with the affected case and have recommended that they stay at home and self-isolate until 14 days after their last contact.
Your child has not been identified as a close contact. However it has been necessary to close White Bridge College from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 5th November and work will be provided for your child. School will reopen on Friday 6th November 2020. Elmbridge School remains open.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature and/or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia). If anyone in your household develops these symptoms, you whole household must remain at home and not go to work, school or public areas. You should arrange testing for the person who has developed symptoms. When the result is known further advice will be available.
Testing can be arranged by calling 119 or via the NHS website: nhs.uk/coronavirus
There are things we can all do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:
· wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
· use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
· wash your hands as soon as you get home
· cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
· put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
· maintain an appropriate social distance with non-household members of over 2 metres.

Elmbridge School is a short-stay provision in Tameside for KS2+3 pupils who are not able to access education in mainstream schools.
Pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum within an holistic educational experience which aims to fill in gaps in their learning, enable them to make progress, improve social skills, resilience and self-awareness and enable them to move on to the next phase of their education with confidence.
