Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Bradford Schools Pandemic Recovery

The pandemic has been the most challenging of times for our young people. 

In March 2021, multi academy trusts across Bradford came together to listen to the lived experience of our young people during these times, in an online summit. Over 20 thousand students were represented from the Bradford area. Civic influencers came to listen and to pledge their support for the issues that were raised. 

Following the Summit  we created the Schools Pandemic Recovery Manifesto. Built upon the lived experience of our young people the Manifesto is the foundation for student voice across the city of Bradford. We are working together to make our city a place where all belong and will thrive.

As next steps for the Schools Pandemic Recovery Summit Manifesto work, students from BDAT, Dixons, Exceed and Beckfoot Trustwill deliver issues workshops virtually via Zoom on Friday November 19th to identifand plan targeted action in 2022.
