Part of the Orchard Hill College Academy Trust, The Link Primary School provides specialist teaching and therapy for up to 50 children aged 4 to 11 years whose primary need is speech, language and communication. Some pupils may also have additional learning, sensory or physical needs. The School has been recognised by Ofsted as ‘outstanding’ since 2008 and draws upon over 50 years of experience.
The School has a warm, safe, friendly and nurturing environment which helps children to learn, express their ideas, communicate, develop friendships and become confident citizens. Small classes with high adult to child ratio enable children to settle quickly, move confidently around the school and learn the daily routines which form an integral part of school life.
Children enjoy a wide range of school facilities including an ICT suite, library, fully equipped hall, food technology room, art room and quiet rooms. During playtime they have access to climbing frames, sandpit, trikes and other outdoor toys and games.
A brand new teaching block with facilities for enhanced therapy was completed in September 2015 and also provides the children with larger classrooms and additional outdoor learning opportunities including a sensory garden and kitchen allotment.
We foster close relationships with our local community to enable our children to gain valuable life experiences and encourage children to play an active role in extra-curricular activities such as dance and athletics club. A range of off-site activities are available including horse riding and swimming. Pupils also participate in regular trips to encourage social skills and to enhance their curriculum.
Establishing and developing relationships with parents and carers is a central part of our philosophy. Children learn best when the school and parents work together and we value the contribution that parents make to our school and endeavour to provide many opportunities where parents are involved in school life.
