In accordance with government guidelines the school will open to a wider group of children from Monday 8 June.

We cannot safely reopen the whole school. Attendance will be limited and prioritised based upon supporting children of key workers, those at key transition points and students in most need of support in school across all year groups.

Please contact the school office on admin@linksec.org.uk for any further enquiries.

Safeguarding

The Link Secondary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We ensure that consistent and effective safeguarding procedures and policies are in place to support pupils and staff at school and follow the guidance of Keeping Children Safe in Education September 2019. If a pupil or parent has a concern they should contact the school immediately.

COVID-19 SAFEGUARDING UPDATE: please see the Covid-19 annex to our safeguarding policy for details of how we continue to safeguard students through the coronavirus pandemic.

Child Protection Adult Protection and Safeguarding Policy

The safety of our students is our number one priority.  As we all know, the risks in modern society are varied and constantly changing and we cannot remove these, so we all need to help educate children in ways to keep themselves safe.

As part of safeguarding the pupils of The Link Secondary School we will ensure that no political view is promoted. If political views are discussed as part of the school curriculum we will ensure this is a balanced discussion.
