Big plans for the young people of our Borough

School closures


There are a number of disruptions to Council services because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please check the link below before accessing any of our services.

Schools have access to a system which they can use to notify us of disruption or closure.

Current school closures


From 1 June, primary schools began a phased return of more children and young people.

The approach Stockton-on-Tees is taking in response to this is explained in a letter to all parents and carers here.

Secondary schools have began to introduce more face to face contact for Year 10 pupils, though this will not necessarily involve whole year groups returning to school.

Special schools will continue to undertake risk assessments to determine if the needs of more pupils could be met in school.

Specific provision for vulnerable children and children whose parents/carers are key workers with a critical role in the response to COVID-19 who cannot be cared for at home will continue. 

Visit our schools and childcare page for more information and contact numbers if you have a query, or if your school/setting closes and you need to find an alternative.


School closure notification information

  • To tell us about a school closure, use this online form.

  • While we endeavour to provide comprehensive information we rely on schools, academies and colleges to inform us that they will be closed to all, or some, year groups.
  • For definitive information you are advised to contact schools directly as it is possible they have not yet informed us of closure.
  • We only ever publish disruption or closure information that has been provided directly by a nominated contact at schools, academies and colleges.
