Teaching and Learning Policy

This policy gives guidance to staff on Teaching and Learning and should be read alongside the Assessment, Marking and Feedback Policy. 


The Link School, helps young people aged 4 – 16 overcome their difficulties and achieve their potential by building their confidence and self-esteem. The schools provide a positive, caring environment with an exciting, individualised curriculum for our vulnerable learners. Learners work towards academic success whilst developing social and emotional skills, preparing them to lead an active and fulfilling part in society. Staff are highly skilled, dedicated and determined to help the young people who attend the school. 

Staff aim to promote a culture that effectively breaks down the barriers to learning by creating a safe and stimulating learning environment based on individual need. Learners are taught in smaller groups, with a high staff ration, primary staff apply the Nurture Principles to their environments.
