Newcastle and Gateshead
The Newcastle and Gateshead Schools Linking Programme is led and facilitated by the Laing Gallery, for Newcastle City Council. We launched the programme in the Summer Term 2018 with 14 classes engaging in a summer link funded by BSBT supported by The Linking Network and Newcastle City Council.
Education Officers at the Laing Gallery hosted visits between pairs of classes.
We’ve had a lovely morning and made lots of new friends. Can’t wait for our next visit” – message from children and staff at Milecastle Primary School to their link.
Following a successful summer term link The Laing Gallery agreed to host the Newcastle Linking Programme into the next academic year and we hosted teacher training in October 2018 and 14 classes are now engaged in linking across Newcastle from both primary and secondary schools.
We look forward to updating you on our progress!
