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.

Helping you to put children and learning centre stage

'I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the SEND Review process. Jon has provided clear guidance regarding how to conduct the reviews and the areas to explore. As a result, I am confident that I have gained an overview of both the strengths of SEN provision within [the area] and the areas that require focus during the coming year.'
