Coronavirus

We have a dedicated page that you can refer to on how we are dealing with Coronavirus and remote learning, which you can access by clicking here. Everything on the Coronoavirus advice page has been communicated to parents and students. However, if you have not receive any emails from us, we may not hold the correct contact information for you. The student will need to email our Student Records department from their student email address to update this information: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Information on remote teaching and online safety

Following the Government advice to close the college with the outbreak of Coronavirus and our subsequent move to remote learning, our students will be spending an increased amount of time online. Accordingly we would like to make you aware of the latest guidance and resources from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection command (CEOP) so that parents and carers have the necessary information for ensuring students are accessing the internet in a safe way.

Teachers will never:

  • Ask students for their passwords
  • Ask to talk to students privately e.g. in 1:1 video chats
  • Be replaced by someone you aren’t familiar with
  • Ask to communicate through non-college apps (RuTC uses @rutc.ac.uk email addresses, the Microsoft 365 suite including Microsoft Teams, Edmodo, and Moodle)
  • Arrange to meet students offline
  • Contact students from personal emails or phone numbers

If you have any concerns around online safety, or any other safeguarding concern, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (monitored 9 - 5 Monday to Friday) or the NSPCC.
