The Linking Network
Our school is proud to be part of the Schools Linking Network in Kent. This involves over 20 Primary and Junior Schools in the county and has been running successfully for a number of years; 2018 is the first year that St. Paul's has been involved.
The Linking Network (TLN) is a national charity that supports young people, schools and local authorities to explore identity, diversity, equality and community, using four key questions:
Who am I?
Who are we?
Where do we live?
How do we all live together?
Many local schools are involved and are put into pairs of classes at the beginning of the year. Throughout the year, the class from each school in the pair will meet up three times and take part in team activities and games. The children also complete identity work in class which is linked to the four key questions and the children learn to appreciate who they are and what makes them special as well as to appreciate and respect similarities and differences in others. Year 5 at St. Paul's is currently linked with Year 5 at Temple Hill Primary Academy, Dartford. Keep an eye on this page, to see what they have been doing.
