We are impressed with the impact LNK has had on student progress at Oasis Academy Shirley Park this year. LNK work with a range of students including supporting those who are struggling to engage in education and/or are facing social and emotional challenges. This includes working with children who are looked after, students with special educational needs and students who are struggling in and/or out of school. The mentors at LNK are skilled at supporting students in their understanding of the importance of learning and the need to be in school. They have been developing the reflection and decision making skills of students, as well as focusing on resilience. The students are supported emotionally and socially with challenges that they face in and out of school on a daily basis. The LNK mentors empower the students to make positive choices.
