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 your needs in 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 will provide centrally managed firewalls to give that extra level of protection and Smoothwall will 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, as you would expect, 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 you the options based provision that you asked for - the safe, fast, fun internet access they deserve for as little as £5.50 each per year plus the speed you choose for your connection with no additional charge for staff access.
