TOWER HAMLETS SCHOOLS LINKING PROJECT: Linking Lives Towards Community Cohesion
With an ever-increasing number of children from diverse backgrounds and with special needs arriving in London, this project links schools across North and East with the message that every child has something to offer when they are enabled. Through a series of continued professional development opportunities, teachers are being skilled up in integrating children’s diverse backgrounds, needs and abilities through school linking, and celebrating the encounters.
Children’s relationships are also being broadened as they explore diversity in their community by linking with a contrasting local school. Curiosity, connection and kindness are emphasised as the children come together.
Our support framework for teachers is on hand throughout the year to ensure children’s meetings are joyful, equitable and meaningful.
