Links Primary School

Friday 26th January 2024

Dear Links Families,


It has been another busy week in school and as we walked around it was clear to see all the children enjoying their learning whether they were making a model, climbing the apparatus or reading a book.  Our Year 6 children also had a fantastic time at the Chaucer Centre taking part in Merton Junior Citizenship. They worked alongside other institutions to get an insight into the workings of society and to develop life skills to prepare them for adulthood.  The children and staff all enjoyed themselves.


Royal Albert Hall - Year 5 Performance           

If you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to book your tickets  at the Royal Albert Hall with Merton Music Foundation, for their epic ‘Music is for Life’ concert on Monday 11 March 2024. Our Year 5 children have been rehearsing for months for this amazing experience.  Tickets are still available, please visit  if you wish to purchase tickets.



NSPCC Number Day Friday 2nd February 2024  

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 2nd February 2024.


We are having a fun day of maths activities and we will be taking part in Dress up for Digits. Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). Or, get even more creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme. If you do not have anything number themed at home, do not worry, you can wear anything patterned or with shapes on it. To help raise money for the NSPCC we are asking for donations. If you can, please send in a donation to support the NSPCC’s work. This can be given to the class teacher on the day.


All the money we raise at Links Primary School will make an enormous difference to children today and help the NSPCC be there for children tomorrow.


Just a reminder that there will be no playscheme this half term. Playscheme will run as usual in the Easter holidays. Additional information can be found on the school website via the Extended Services tab
