Project explores how Bowling Park primary school has tried to maintain education amid the uncertainty of lockdown
“They’re wary of trusting schools,” says Matthew Langley, principal of Bowling Park primary school in Bradford, of the local Roma community. “They’re wary of trusting social workers or hospitals. And my sense is they’re very wary about being judged or punished for who they are. So it takes a long time to build up relationships with families.”
Langley’s comments come in the first of three short films about Bowling Park’s efforts to support its 90 Roma pupils and their families in some of Bradford’s most deprived areas during the Covid-19 pandemic.
