We believe that engaging children in social action as part of their linking journey enhances the experience and deepens the impact. Thinking together about things that matter to us and exploring shared goals helps children to have an understanding of how we all live together and ways we can make a difference. Whether you call it social action, active citizenship or volunteering it provides a powerful purpose for linking schools and their community. We have lots of news and ideas to share from events and activities across the network. Have a look at the resources below or get in touch for more support.
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
