Blackburn Linking Project 2019/2020
Our programme for School Linking has been endorsed by the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Department for Education (DfE). It is nationally recognised as offering a positive, age appropriate curriculum contribution to spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, British values and the Prevent Duty. We feel the project creates real reasons for communicating and is a fantastic way for children to meet and interact with others. Importantly, Linking also promotes achievement through literacy rich resources.
The children meet three times in the year, usually the first of these meetings is an educational visit in a neutral venue, followed by visits to each school in the spring / summer term. The classes exchange work throughout the year and through this structured programme explore four key questions:
· Who am I? – exploring identity
· Who are we? – celebrating diversity
· Where do we live? – promoting community
· How do we all live together? – championing equality
