OPEN MORNING

Our next open morning will be held on Monday 20th June 2022 at 9.30am. To book your place, please email Karen Hayward at khayward@linksec.org.uk

There will be a talk from the Principal, a tour of the school, and a chance to ask any questions throughout the morning. The open morning is aimed at parents/carers only at this initial stage.

Admissions

We hold open days every half term when parents can look around the school and meet the Principal 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.

Oversubscription Criteria:

If The Link Secondary School is oversubscribed, the application will be added to the waiting list for the relevant Year Group and reassessed if a place becomes available in an appropriate Class. The school will check with the relevant Local Authority on an annual basis whether the application is still current.

Usually the initial enquiry is made by parents, but referrals also come from Local Authorities, whether on the parents’ or their own behalf.
