Tackling The Digital Divide

Access to digital education remains an inequality in Bradford district and is a source of disruption to learning.

The Education and Learning Department in Children’s Services provided over 3,000 devices to those who needed it throughout the pandemic. Working collaboratively with Bradford Council’s Looked After Children’s service, all Looked After Children were provided with devices and provided with access to the internet.

Next steps involve active engagement with schools to support the delivery of training to improve the use of those devices where necessary. Contact Sharon Sanders for more information about devices for pupils or training.

Digital devices for pupils still available
