Vision and Values

LINK Learning Trust Vision and Values

Barlow Hall Primary School is one of the two founding schools of the LINK Learning Trust, (LLT), which, along with Brookburn Primary School in Chorlton, joined together to form a  Multi Academy Trust (MAT)  which promotes a set of values and a vision for all of its children which we hope will enhance and inspire the lives of not only the children who attend our school but their families and the wider community.

We would like all our children, irrespective of background or special need, to be prepared for success in their future lives.

We will achieve this by nurturing and developing their achievement, their experiences and their skills and we will provide the skills and knowledge needed to promote growth mindsets and build resilience in our children
