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.
