Bradford Learning Network

The Bradford Learning Network is Bradford Council's not for profit provider of education focused internet provision for education establishments.

The core values of the BLN are:-

  • to provide a service that helps meet the needs of safeguarding pupils on the internet
  • effectively support Headteachers meet their responsibilities regarding the management of data security and risk
  • provide equity of access for all learners across the Bradford district
  • offer value for money
  • deliver state of the art technology

In securing the service with Virgin Media, the BLN has done this and more. To compliment this technology Virgin provide centrally managed firewalls to give an extra level of protection and Smoothwall provide individual firewalls and internet filtering rather than filtering being managed centrally. All this technology provides for greater internet and data security on top of state of the art services and complies with all DfE recommendations for your internet provision.

The School Reference Group (SRG) and Technical Reference Group (TRG), comprised of school representitives from across Bradford, worked alongside the BLN team to bring the options based provision requested by schools - safe, fast, fun internet access for as little as £5.50 per pupil per year plus the cost of the chosen connection speed with no additional charge for staff access.
