What is the All Together Now programme?
It is a School Linking project which has been running in Lancashire since 2017.
This a national initiative, which has been running successfully in primary and secondary schools since 2001. The programme has been developed by The Linking Network, who are based in Bradford. It forges links between communities and enables young people to meet others from a different community who they may not get to meet during their normal day to day lives; helping to develop trust, empathy, awareness and respect.

During the summer term 2017 eight schools took part in a KS2 project. Here is some of their feedback:-
"The project gave our pupils the language to express themselves and helped them gain greater awareness and broadened their outlook"
Class Teacher, Cherry Fold Community Primary School
"The celebration day and the project helped the children recognise that they are similar. They improved their understanding of different cultures and gained more insight."
