Links Primary School is a large, two-form-entry school with a nursery and out of school club. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, which children, parents and staff enjoy.
The school is situated on the very edge of the London Borough of Merton and some of our pupils live in the London Borough of Wandsworth.

Summer Holidays

School will break up for the Summer Holidays on Tuesday 22nd July at 1:30pm and Nursery will finish on Monday, 21st July. There will be no after school club on Tuesday 22nd July. Children return to school on Wednesday 3rd September (Year 1 to Year 6). Reception classes return on Friday 5th September and Nursery children return on Monday 8th September, to allow Foundation Stage staff time to make home visits to new Nursery and Reception children.

Universal Free School Meals

Remember that from September ALL RECEPTION, YEAR 1 AND YEAR 2 children will receive a free school meal every day. This is a great opportunity for our younger children to enjoy a healthy, tasty, cooked meal and to develop their social skills and manners by sitting down to eat together every day.

Staff changes

After many years of teaching at Links, Mrs Toulson has decided to retire at the end of term. She has contributed a great deal to the school over the years and many of our children started their education under her care in the Nursery. She will be greatly missed. I am sure you would want to join me in thanking her for all she has done and to wish her a happy, healthy and long retirement.

We are also saying farewell to Mr Lockhart who is moving north of the border, to Scotland and Mrs Davies who is moving to Hampshire. Both of them have secured new teaching positions and I am sure they will be an asset to their new schools.

Mr Morita has decided to devote more time to music and is moving to North London, where I am sure he will be very successful in whatever he chooses to do.

Miss Mutiso, one of our Nursery Nurses, is taking a change in career and will be working with adults in the care sector.

Sara Syed has finished her apprenticeship with us and we wish her well in her new ventures.

We will miss them all, but I hope they will keep in touch and let us know how they are getting on.

PE Kit

Please make sure your child has PE kit in school EVERY day. There are often timetable changes which mean the children do not always know in advance when they will need to change for PE. May I also remind you that our PE kit consists of a white tee-shirt and black shorts, with plimsolls or trainers. Tracksuit bottoms or leggings are only allowed in the Winter months.

School Exchange

Last term our school received funding to visit our partner school, Indraprastha International, in Delhi, India. Click here to read Mrs Akhaware's report on her visit and to see pictures of her trip.
