    Year 4 have taken part in a school linking project with Blackrod Primary School. Throughout the year the classes met and learned about how our two schools were both similar and different. The aim of the project was for children to understand what it is like in other areas of Bolton, in other schools and to also understand diversity and equality amongst each other.

    (2016 – 2017)

    Year 2 took part in a school linking project with St Peter’s C.E. Primary School. Throughout the year the classes met and had opportunities to compare the differences and similarities between their schools. The children were able to meet others who were similar to, and different from, themselves from other areas of Bolton, and could talk about the differences in diversity.

    Since 2015, Year 6 children have linked with other eleven year olds in Poland. They have written to each other via the school blogs as ‘penpals’, and discussed and compared the similarities and differences in their lives and cultures.
