Council plans phased reopening of city’s library service

The City of Wolverhampton Council is planning a phased reopening of the city’s library service. Although the city’s 16 libraries closed their doors to customers at the start of the coronavirus lockdown in March, members have been able to enjoy a host of digital services since then – and physical books and other items were made available once more last month. Councillor Stephen Simkins, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "Cases of Covid-19 in Wolverhampton have jumped in recent days and we cannot afford to let our guard down in our fight against the virus. "That's why we are taking a careful and cautious approach to the reopening of all our services, in

Parents and pupils urged: Help your school stay Covid-secure

Parents and pupils are being urged to do all they can to help their school stay Covid-secure. Schools across the city have reopened to all pupils for the first time since the coronavirus lockdown was imposed in March – with a raft of measures in place to ensure they are as safe as possible, including enhanced cleaning regimes, 'bubbles' and staggered start and finish times. Pupils and parents can help out by adhering to the ‘Hands, Face, Space’ guidelines. Children must wash their hands more often and use hand sanitiser, and pupils and parents are asked to keep two metres away from anyone who is not a member of their household, or their household or school bubble. Parents and carers are also

Music Service perform Stormzy hit to inspire young people

A unique performance has been recorded by staff at Wolverhampton Music Service to inspire and galvanise young people across the city to make music. Staff have jointly performed Blinded By Your Grace Pt 2 by British rapper Stormzy – himself seen as an inspiration and positive role model within the music industry. He was the first Black British solo artist to headline the main stage at Glastonbury and has taken positive action to reduce educational inequality, setting up a scholarship fund to help academically gifted Black-British students to study at Cambridge University. Recorded by staff separately at home, the video features a joint performance filmed at Bantock Park. Staff are joined on t

Children and parents happy as pupils return to city's schools

Tens of thousands of pupils returned to school this week – some for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March. With attendance at school mandatory once more this term, a significant number of the city's primary schools are reporting attendances of 90% or above. Secondary schools are expected to welcome all year groups back by today (Friday). Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: "It's heartening that many of our schools have seen very high attendance rates from day one, and we look forward to seeing that number increase further as schools fully reopen to all year groups and as pupils who ha

Stay alert to Covid-19 warning to city’s younger residents

Younger Wulfrunians are being urged to stay vigilant in the Covid-19 pandemic, despite a slight drop in the number of new cases across the West Midlands. In the seven days up to 31 August, the number of cases across Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, Birmingham, Coventry and Solihull stood at 13.7 per 100,000 population – down from 13.8 the previous week. However, the rate of new diagnoses remains above the national rate and, as the leaders of the seven councils met to discuss the regional picture this week, they highlighted an increase in cases among young people, with more than one in five cases across the region over the last fortnight coming in the 20-29 age group. Stressing the n
