Special-Mainstream Linking


At The Linking Network, we are here to support all kinds of schools to form thoughtful linking partnerships that benefit everyone who is involved. Special School РMainstream Linking is an important part of the Network. In this area, we are sharing guidance and CPD for setting up your special-mainstream link; case studies of different links that have taken place, with examples from Bradford, Bolton, Buckinghamshire, Derby and Tower Hamlets; resources that have been produced by teachers taking part in Special-Mainstream links, including social stories.

We also have autism friendly resources here.
