The Linking Network

Dear parents/carers,

I have attached a letter to introduce our exciting new project. Herons will be heading up our linking project with the year 5 class at Dixons Music Primary School, Bradford. 


The Linking Network has been established in 29 local authorities and currently has 29,430 children involved. It provides the children with a very real opportunity to explore their identity, diversity and how we all can live well together. It encourages meaniful interaction in a safe process; it allows for the recognition of and respect for diversity. But above all, it is enjoyable.


I was involved in setting up a similar link elsewhere and this project is now in its eighth year. I have seen children develop awareness, trust, empathy and respect for others. I am excited that our wonderful Herons now have the opportunity to share together with 'Manchester' class at the 'outstanding' Dixons Music School.


Yours excitedly
