Eldwick Primary School have been linking with Girlington Primary School since 2002. This has proved to be a very successful partnership as Bradford is such a varied and diverse community.
Each year the children are very excited to make new friends and always look forward to learning about Girlington Primary and what the children do there. We meet up three times over the year and send each other cards on special occasions.
- Linking develops skills of enquiry, critical thinking, reflection, and communication.
- Develops trust, empathy, awareness, and respect.
- Provides opportunities for children and young people to meet, build new relationships, work together and contribute to the wider community.
"Our pupils had the opportunity to meet children with completely different cultures and backgrounds which was very good for them. Some were a little anxious before the first encounter but afterwards they were nothing but excited.” Miss Jessup
