Schools Linking supports schools and communities to develop a positive, cohesive ethos by helping children and young people and adults to explore their identity, celebrate diversity, champion equality and develop dialogue.

We seek to link schools and communities together, and support work SLN linking visiton SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural) development that can form a lever for positive whole school change. This includes exploration of British values. Our learning, from the Bradford local school linking programme, from partners we work with around the country and our direct work with schools, informs our training.

We believe this work has never been more needed and makes an important difference in the lives of children and young people and can make a significant contribution to community cohesion. The team establishing this charity has a voice that is valued in schools and recognised nationally.

We can support you with:

  • Running a local linking project for groups of schools.Bradford-Linking-at-Culture-Fusion-2012

  • Staff training in your school connected to ethos and SMSC, British Values, relationships, cohesion, equalities.

You can access our training on days we arrange or you can contact us to arrange training in your school or organisation.

We are rooted in Bradford where we deliver the Bradford Primary School Linking programme, are commissioned to support Bradford Secondary Schools on their development of SMSC and school ethos and are developing an SMSC resource network for teachers. We deliver training for School Linking and SMSC in other Local Authority areas and support the delivery of partners across the country. We host a website to share learning and resources. All our delivery feeds into the continuous development of our programmes and our learning.
