Our approach to external linking

How links are chosen for the Childwall Abbey School website

Childwall Abbey School website (herein referred to as CAS) occasionally links to external (non-CAS) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.

These links are included for a number of reasons, including:

  • for further relevant information or other key source material
  • for background information
  • for useful practical information
  • for entertainment or enjoyment
  • for further informed comment
  • We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind.

We link to sites purely on editorial merit. These will most often be free to access, but users may sometimes be asked to register or subscribe before viewing content.

The CAS homepage does not accept submissions or requests. The homepage team selects links and evaluates websites on the basis of editorial relevance.

Links to external websites

External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, CAS is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:

  • CAS does not produce them or maintain/update them
  • CAS cannot change them
  • they can be changed without the CAS’s knowledge or agreement.
  • Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases.

The inclusion of a link to an external website from CAS should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site’s owners (or their products/services).

Links to user generated material

Some of the content we link to on both internal CAS pages and external websites is generated by members of the public (messageboards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of CAS. If you consider this content to be in breach of the house rules as indicated on the website, please alert the moderators or site owners on the sites where the material appears.
