Message to all parents 11/03/20

The following message was sent to all BACA parents and carers on Wednesday 11th March.

Dear Parents and Carers

You will be well aware of the Coronavirus and the government advice concerning it. Today we have been informed that a sixth former at BACA College and their family have been advised by the medical authorities to self-isolate as a precaution having reported feeling unwell.

They are not a confirmed case, but as a precaution we have asked a number of sixth formers in the student’s close friendship group to go home and contact 111 to seek advice as to whether they should self-isolate too.

Like all schools we are working closely with the authorities and adhering to Public Health England and Department for Education advice for schools and colleges. Brighton and Hove City Council’s current clear advice is that schools should remain open and parents should ensure their children attend school unless they're unwell or have been advised to self-isolate.

You can see links to the latest advice from the Local Authority and Public Health England on our website. We will continue to keep parents updated with any advice passed on to us.
