All the latest information, support and guidance for children and young people are available below, including education resources.

Face coverings

  • Pupils (Primary and Secondary) will be expected to wear a face covering on school transport
  • Pupils and staff within secondary schools will be required to wear a face covering in all areas outside the classroom. This includes within the school yard at break times and lunch times and at other times of the day when pupils are congregating in those areas (e.g. waiting to enter school). All pupils within the Secondary sector will have been provided with two reusable 3 tier face coverings each for this purpose

Free School Meals

  • Free school meals are available to full-time, eligible pupils who attend schools which are under the jurisdiction of Ceredigion Education Authority. To find out more (including what the arrangements are for when pupils are at home), and apply for the scheme, visit this page: Free School Meals

There are 86 community play areas in Ceredigion, 85 are owned or managed by Town and Community Councils or Community Groups, so the decision to reopen the play areas lies with them. One is owned by Ceredigion County Council, which is Netpool in Cardigan. The play area in Netpool will remain closed for the time being.
