School Description

Pupils thrive at Link Primary School. Staff are expert in communicating with pupils. They work tirelessly to develop pupils’ confidence and their ability to interact positively. Pupils feel safe and happy. They play and learn together with minimum disruption despite their many varied needs. Staff are extremely knowledgeable about their school community and are always seeking new, better ways to maximise learning for all. They ensure that pupils get the right help at the right time. Staff aim high for pupils. Pupils gain valuable knowledge and experience of the wider world. They take part in an excellent range of activities. They learn through real-life experiences such as local visits or specialist sessions like horse-riding. These activities promote pupils’ increasing confidence and self-esteem. Pupils behave well at this school. Classrooms are calm. Staff ensure that day-to-day routines are clear and easy to understand, so pupils know exactly what they need to do. This clear communication helps pupils behave well and reduces any anxiety. Staff are on hand at breaktimes and at lunch to help pupils enjoy this time with each other. Bullying is very rare. When it does happen, staff deal with it effectively. Staff help pupils to learn about how to show kindness as part of their work on respect and relationships.
