The Faith & Belief Forum’s linking programme is run as part of The Linking Network; the programme’s focus is to equip teachers with the skills, knowledge and support to provide these opportunities for their students. The teachers involved will be partnered with another teacher and class, who they will be working over the course of an academic year, to plan three ‘Link’ days. School Linking gives students opportunities to learn from each other, and encourages them to feel confident and curious, as they meet people from different backgrounds. School Linking has been endorsed and funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Department for Education (DfE).
