The Linking Network supports schools and communities to develop a positive, cohesive ethos through linking programmes, classroom resources and teacher training.

We support all kinds of schools to link  – primary, secondary, special, maintained community schools, independent schools, faith schools, schools with a faith ethos, academies & free schools . We provide  structured programme of free resources to help all schools provide the experience of connecting their pupils with others. Our linking programme is structured through four questions  Who am I? Who are we? Where do we live? How do we all live together?

If your school would like to link please get in touch:

If your school is in one of the 29 local schools linking programmes across England which are part of The Linking Network do contact us or your nearest local area facilitator contact

If your school is not in one of these areas then  and you and another school would like to link please contact us directly at We can offer you training and resources.

If you are interested in gathering a group of schools to link in your Local Area please get in touch

In 2020-2021 we are offering a  fully resourced Virtual Schools Linking Programme connecting pupils from within their classrooms to meet others.  Currently Linking is paused due to the lockdown adn instead we are providing a wide range of free  Remote Learning Resources for Teachersand  Home Learning Resources for Parents  for both Primary and Secondary Schools .

All our resources develop PSHE , Citizenship  and SMSC and help pupils explore identity, celebrate diversity, promote community and champion equality.
