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.

The Team

We are a small school and have a comprehensive team to meet the diverse needs and well-being of our pupils. Therapy is at the core of our school and is what makes the Link a special school for our pupils and parents. Our therapists work in close partnership with the teaching and support staff and parents.
