Covid Response Work

As the Covid 19 pandemic had a dramatic effect on schools in Spring and Summer of 2020, much of the planned work in the Opportunity Area had to be set aside while Ipswich schools worked hard to support children and young people and their families through the crisis.

A number of Opportunity Area partners offered a range of support to help schools over the lockdown period and many projects will continue over the Summer holiday and beyond.
