Young people all over Cornwall will be returning to schools and colleges after their summer breaks.

For many pupils they will be returning with far fewer restrictions than when they left for the summer holidays!

It means pupils will be able to experience a fuller education experience, including, access to more group activities, team sports, playing with friends, plays, and taking part in musical groups.

Because of these changes, we have pulled together a handy guide for parents, young people and professionals on the changes. 

But, you would have also seen in the press that due to the high rates of covid infection being seen currently across the South West, Cornwall & Isles of Scilly, Devon, Plymouth and Torbay have been moved to an Enhanced Response Area (ERA) by central government.

This will be in place for 5 weeks initially but will be reviewed after 4 weeks.

This move enables us area to receive additional capacity and to put in place additional measures to try to reduce transmission locally.
