The Hull Learning Partnership, in conjunction with Hull City Council is taking preventative action against coronavirus by agreeing that school staff, and secondary pupils across the city are expected to wear face coverings in certain situations from Monday 21 September.

New Measures - Coronavirus (COVID-19) 16/09/2020

New Measures – Coronavirus (COVID-19) 16/09/2020

The government has announced new measures to suppress the virus and keep the number of infections down. The government has a plan to control the virus and protect the public, as well as keeping the economy and society open. That plan is working: with great collective effort, we have reduced infections significantly from its peak, and enabled the return of more normality to our lives.

The Hull Asthma Project 15/09/2020

The aims of the project The Hull Asthma Project aims to improve the care of adults living with asthma in Hull by improving the use of guidelines in the community.
