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 - Mainstream Linking is an important part of the Network. We are sharing case studies here of different links that have taken place, with examples from Bradford, Buckinghamshire, Tower Hamlets and Bolton. Special School linking page
We believe that engaging parents in their child's experience of the Schools Linking journey is important and can make a big difference to the impact of the programme. Engaging parents could be as simple as sending letters home, inviting parents to an assembly or sending a scrap book or journal home. The Linking Network team can support you if you would like to do more to engage parents or your local community. We've got lots of resources you can download and use. We also have lots of ideas to share from events and activities School Linking programmes from the National Network have already undertaken. Have a look at our Parent Linking page or get in touch for more support. Parent Linking page
Teaching resources ideal for use with primary school students at key stages one and two.
Teaching resources specifically aimed at school linking and exchanging information through our four key questions, including structured lesson plans and identity work.
We have written two sets of resources for Home Educated pupils. The primary resources help children explore and think through democracy, individual liberty, rule of law and respect for diversity. The Digital Knowhow secondary resources are written to help students explore 'truth, lies and the internet' and learn skills for deconstructing propaganda. Please contact us if you are interested in these resources. Home Education Log-in
