A story from our work – Dartford Primary

The schools linking programme has been a fantastic opportunity for both my class and I. The children have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know children from another school and building new friendships. The programme has allowed our children exposure to children they perhaps wouldn’t normally mix with due to a different socio-economic background and this exposure has broken down barriers for both our schools. My class have a wide range of children from different cultures, while our partner school is predominately White-English children. This has been the main benefit of the schools linking programme.

The project has also allowed me to create partnerships with teachers from other schools and learn new methods of teaching.  In conclusion the schools linking project has been a huge benefit to my school, my class and my teaching. Highly recommend.
