Links Primary School

Friday 17th November 2023


Dear Links Families,

Today was awash with SPOTcular clothing, to raise money for Children in Need. This morning in assembly we spoke about how this charity helps children in the UK and spoke about showing kindness to others. Thank you for your contributions and for supporting this invaluable charity, we raised £205!


This week 3B and 5KG visited Mitcham Library and today some children from Key Stage 2 attended a Kurling and Sit Down Volleyball competition with Coach Cardisha.



Just a reminder that school will be closed next Friday, 24th November for staff training.


School Photos

On Wednesday and Thursday next week, the school photographer will be taking individual, family group and class photos. Please ensure that your child is wearing their school uniform on these days.

PTA Notices

The PTA are taking orders for Christmas Trees now. Just go to your account and place your order before 22nd November.

Due to the huge success of the advertising boards for our summer social Aspire Estate Agents have kindly agreed to sponsor our upcoming Christmas Fair. We raised nearly £1000 for the school advertising the summer fair. For every home that agrees to have a board advertising the Christmas Fair outside their property the PTA will receive £20 - such an easy way to raise money for the school and costs you nothing!

The company will put the boards up 2 weeks before the Christmas Fair and take them back down the week after the event. Please use this link to sign up to this amazing opportunity

Friday 1st December will be a MUFTI day to raise donations for the school Christmas Fair. Please bring in Selection boxes, a box of chocolates, bags of sweets, Christmas themed boxed cakes etc or a soft toy (clean and in good condition).

Come and join us at the Christmas Fair in the bottom hall on Friday 8th December 3pm-5pm!
