Bristol Learning City Resource Directory

Supporting children and young people in their learning is difficult at the best of times. Juggling parenting and work is a difficult balance to strike, which has been further complicated by school closures, isolation and a nationwide lock down. For many, trying to find engaging, inspiring and quality learning materials has become a full time profession in itself. That is why Bristol Learning City has started to curate a number of resources that are suitable for home-learning, including resources for children and young people with SEND. The list is far from complete and further resources will be added in the coming days and weeks. An additional list of resources can be found on the Department for Education website.

Our aim is to create a list of resources produced by Bristol based educators and learning providers. If you come across something that is particularly interesting, useful or engaging please feel free to send us a link at

It’s easy to use, just filter the resources by key stage, tag, subject or school year.

Let’s keep Bristol learning!
