Primary School Linking in Bradford

Description

Year 5 pupils from Thornton Primary, a semi-rural school in West Yorkshire embark on their first visit to partner school Barkerend Primary in Bradford city centre.

The visit is part of a year-long linking project exploring the theme of identity, supported by the Schools Linking Network. Working in pairs, the children consider the similarities and differences between each other and their schools, eventually collaborating to design their ideal school.

Back at Thornton, class teacher Angela Lodge organises a reflective discussion with a small group of her pupils at the end of the day.

The Schools Linking Network began six years ago in Bradford, and is now embarking on a national programme to support other local authorities across the UK in establishing sustainable and effective linking programmes.

Part of the series: Community Cohesion through School Partnerships
