COVID-19 rates in Stockton-on-Tees are very high so the Government has named it, along with the rest of the North East, an Enhanced Response Area. Find out more on our Enhanced Response Area page.

Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges will open for face-to-face teaching for all students as part of "Step 1" of the Government's roadmap out of lockdown.
Secondary schools may stagger the return to allow COVID-19 testing to be carried out. Students will be tested three times in the first two weeks and then have two rapid tests to use each week at home. Staff will also be tested regularly.
Clubs for children in school buildings (both before and after normal school hours) are also able to resume and other children's school activities such as sport will restart.
