Open Evenings 2021

Following advice from Public Health Lancashire regarding the rise in Covid-19 cases locally in Burnley, Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College, Shuttleworth College, Sir John Thursby Community College and Unity College have made the difficult decision to not have Open Evenings on site this year.

Instead, from Monday 4 October until Sunday 31 October 2021 a package of information including videos / virtual tours will be available on each of the colleges websites to help families get an insight into each college to help make their decision about their year 6 child’s secondary education for September 2022.

COVID 19 Update 

  • The guidance from the Government is for all school age students to test twice weekly using lateral flow tests provided by schools. We advise that you test your child on Wednesdays and Sundays.
  • If your child tests positive on a lateral flow test at home, they must isolate and book a PCR test. If the PCR test is negative they can return to school. 
  • If your child tests positive and you are double vaccinated, you do not need to self-isolate.
  • If any member of your household has tested positive,  your child does not need to self-isolate unless they show any symptoms.
  • If your child or any member of your household is showing symptoms you must arrange a PCR test and isolate until you get the result. You child does not need to isolate whilst you are waiting for the test result.
  • Please inform us at school of the result of any PCR tests.
  • If your child is at home, work will be set online each day. Please click here for further information on Remote Learning
