Links Primary School

Friday 24th November, 2023

Dear Links Families,

We hope you and your families are well. As you know we have held one of our training days where staff have been working on a number of school priorities for this year, including children's writing, provision for children with special educational needs and with English as an additional language.

We're excited to launch our Links Primary School PTA Donations Page. It can be shared with family and friends as you don't need a ParentPay account to use it. Just make your donation and make a note of what it is for (ie. raffle tickets, Christmas Tree etc) and remember to tick the Gift Aid box. That way, the PTA will get 25% more!

We look forward to seeing all the children back on Monday as we start the run up to Christmas.

Please see below for our Christmas dates, we are looking forward to seeing you at these special events in the next couple of weeks. Individual letters will be sent out to relevant classes regarding performances.
