Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council has confirmed that there will be no delay in allocating secondary school places following the ransomware cyber-attack which targeted the council’s IT servers on February 8th.

The Council had previously warned parents that there may be a short delay to the allocation, however it now says that IT and education staff have worked around the clock to run the allocation process as normal and parents and carers will now receive their allocations on time.

The Council says that staff will be allocating the places by the National Offer Day on March 2 and the offer letters will be issued on time.

They also do not expect any disruption to the primary admissions round and anticipate that they will be making offers on primary National Offer Day which is April 16th.

The Council is continuing to make significant progress in returning to full functionality and is doing all it can to minimise any disruption or delays to the public.

 

The UK's first clean energy project, set to bring thousands of jobs to Teesside, was officially launched yesterday.

Net Zero Teesside will be the first major project on the South Tees Development Corporation site and comes just days after a landmark deal was struck to bring the area back into public ownership, ready for development.

It will make Teesside a global leader - after being named the anchor project by a consortium of some of the world's largest energy firms.

An estimated 5,500 jobs will be created and safeguarded.

 

Cleveland Fire Brigade has launched a campaign to tackle arson as the estimated costs to the local economy reached nearly £18m in 2018/19.

85% of fire calls to the Brigade are deliberate fires and they divert resources away from other emergencies and prevention activities. 

The campaign launched yesterday and will focus on how much deliberate fires are costing communities in our area, and how we all need to work together to tackle deliberate fires.
