The Link School continues to be a school with inclusivity at its core. The Headteacher is inspiring and determined. She is unrelenting in her drive to secure the very best life chances for all young people at the school. This vision flows through the school. Leaders have worked hard to create this ambitious culture within the school. All staff have high expectations of pupils and their academic outcomes.
Pupils at The Link School were keen to tell me that they enjoy being part of their school. They talk openly about their experiences at The Link as being positive. One young person said, “Staff are great and make the school good. They are approachable and care about us.” Another pupil explained, “I can talk to the staff here, but I could not in my last school. They try to help me achieve and look at my curriculum to make it work for me.” Throughout the assessment day, a number of children discussed how they knew the staff really care about them.
The parents and carers of the school are seen as partners. They are welcomed and valued. One parent explained, ‘This school is like fairy dust. Staff really listen to us and children become more settled here.”
The Link School is an example of a school committed to meeting the needs of its pupils and is inspiring in its commitment to, and implementation of, inclusive practice. The whole school community has an enthusiasm and passion for their part in enriching the lives of the pupils at the school. Staff provide a caring environment for pupils where high expectations have a huge impact on their progress and wellbeing. They have created a school that is friendly, welcoming, and aspirational. The relentless drive to ensure every child who arrives at the school makes progress – academically, socially, and emotionally – underpins every decision made. Staff strive to close gaps and prepare pupils to transition successfully, and happily, to the next stage of their education.
