Tower Hamlets Linking Project 23-24

Building a sense of togetherness and confidence in contact with others.
Our project brings together children in East London with children in other localities in London to share, play and learn together through online spaces.

The programme is fully resourced and includes online training for lead teachers.

Pupils are given the chance to explore identity, understand diversity, champion equality, and celebrate community with depth and sensitivity in a well-structured curriculum-rich link.

Participation includes:

  • Partnership with a school in a different locality
  • One face to face and one online CPD
  • Tried and tested resources (provided)
  • On-going support


  • Impact, reflection, and evaluation activities built-in
  • Manageable for teachers, impactful and enjoyable for all children
  • Helps develop empathy, critical thinking, trust, self-esteem, achievement, recovery and supports mental health and well being through meaningful connections with others
  • Deepens understanding of different beliefs by creating a safe space for young people to engage directly with peers from different backgrounds and reflect on how to become more open-minded, respectful and self-aware.
  • Gives pupils a purpose and audience for reading and writing
