Ceredigion schools will aim to re-open for face to face learning for all pupils on Monday(Jan 10).
Distance learning will be provided for the majority of learners on Friday 7 January 2022. Some groups of learners, including learners in years 11 and 13 will attend school for face to face provision on Friday 7 January 2022.
The number of COVID-19 cases in Ceredigion continues to be exceptionally high at a rate of 1,587per 100,000 of the population, with 1,154 of cases reported in the last 7 days.
The Council is facing increasing staffing absences across all its services due to the Omicron variant. Re-opening on 10 January 2022 will allow the implementation of contingency plans to enable continuation of care for the most vulnerable in our society. We are kindly asking staff to volunteer as contingency staff should the Council need additional capacity, particularly in the care sector.
At times, staff absences in schools may lead to re-establishing distance learning for a period of time. Schools continue to work in challenging conditions and we thank all for their co-operation.
