Ethos and Values

Our Ethos

We link hands to ensure every child is understood so that they will achieve their full potential. We overcome barriers today so that children and parents can look forward to a bright future tomorrow

Our shared ethos enables us to think about and plan for the future of our children with imagination and wisdom.

Our Values

Our values are at the forefront of everything we do. They direct us to make good decisions and drive our commitment and behaviour. We aim to be:

Child centred – We make sure our systems are flexible so that we can meet the needs of each child that steps foot through The Link doorway. Each child drives the Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Continuing Professional Development and Resources that are needed to ensure success.

Nurturing – We have an emphasis on whole person learning. We see difficulties and barriers as opportunities. We focus on developing quality relationships that will help us build resilience.

Ambitious – We are only satisfied when children receive outstanding provision. We aim to ensure teaching and learning is of the highest quality with a recognition of emerging skills and next steps to ensure pupils reach their potential in all areas.

Team working – Education and therapy staff are integral to The Link provision and bring their heads together to plan, teach and evaluate progress for every individual pupil. We aim to use the most effective strategies and to discover new ones by learning from and inspiring one other.

 

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
