LINCs - Learning, Inclusion & Support Centre
The Learning, Inclusion and Support Centre (LINCs) offers alternative curriculum support for individuals and groups of students who may be experiencing challenge or barriers to learning and engagement. The provision supports students with a combination of a taught academic curriculum alongside support and intervention focusing on emotional regulation and wellbeing, executive functioning skills and support for academic success as part of their whole education provision.
Your child may be referred to LINCs if staff feel that they need some extra support with their learning, behaviour, wellbeing or attendance. The LINCs offer will be reviewed half-termly and the aim is to reintegrate to a full-time main school timetable with support over time.
The LINCs building is on school site to the right-hand side of the car park, between Asda and Chaucer school main building. The building consists of two classrooms, an intervention space, a sensory room, a calm room, a recreation room (used for Arts & Crafts and at social times), a computer suite, two offices and a kitchen.
