We hold open days every half term when parents can look around the school and meet the Headteacher and Senior Team. Children are offered a place at The Link Secondary School after a careful assessment process which allows us to be certain that we can meet their needs.
Whilst the primary need of pupils at the school is speech, language and communication many also have additional needs. For example, many of our pupils are diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. Such secondary needs are taken into consideration during the assessment process. A child must have a Statement of Educational Needs or EHCP before being assessed by the school.
Usually the initial enquiry is made by parents, but referrals also come from Local Authorities, whether on the parents’ or their own behalf.
