Covid 19 Update

Corona Virus (Covid 19)

We have put this page together to try to create a quick reference page that will direct you to some education relevant pages that may be of help.

Backdrop Education has resumed its in-school work and continuing to support schools via telephone and video calls.  We will be as adaptable as possible to support our schools needs.

Please call us, even if it is just to have someone to listen to your thoughts, worries and plans, we want to help.

Please stay well and safe.

Director, Backdrop Education

He knowledge is superb and his highly professional and informative report enabled us to create a Trust wide plan as well as individual school ones. I can not recommend him highly enough.'
