The website is a solid foundation of core information and resources to support those who provide governance to and to those who are leaders of Catholic schools and academies. The intention is to continually improve and add to the existing information and resources, by extending the sections where appropriate, and adding to several of the pages.

CatholicLinks will aim to keep up to date with changes in legislation, guidance and advice from the DfE and other national bodies.

CatholicLinks will also aim to respond to feedback from those who use the website, which could include producing new materials in response to direct requests and thus continually improving the overall quality of the resources and service.

Information is provided about who is responsible for producing CatholicLinks, as well as associated professionals who can offer a range of advice, guidance and support to schools or academies, independent of CatholicLinks.   CatholicLinks receives no fees, commission, financial benefits or benefits in kind from any of the associates for their inclusion in the website or any work they undertake as a consequence; the aim is simply to offer a range of known individuals the opportunity to introduce themselves to a wider range of Catholic schools and academies.

CatholicLinks is particularly grateful to the Right Reverend David McGough, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, who has given his permission for his weekly reflections, written for the Catholic Herald, to be used on this website.  It is a great privilege to benefit from the knowledge, wisdom and spiritual guidance of Bishop McGough.

Additionally, in keeping with the Catholic character of the website, there is encouragement to support charitable giving with a particular focus on three Catholic charities that care for the well-being of children and young people. Catholic schools and academies are dedicated to caring for children and young people; it is appropriate that this website encourages participation in national and international charitable enterprises that support those who are in need.
