A cross-phase programme based on recycling

Created by Ted Kennedy

What did the school want to achieve?

The school aimed to build on primary developments to provide a relevant educational experience linking children across phases, improving transition, motivation and attendance and enabling the high schools to develop a well structured, highly personalised and engaging curriculum that would respond to the needs and concerns of students.

The arts departments sought to enrich students’ experiences by developing partnerships with: Leeds City Art Gallery, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, an artist and poet in residence, funding came from Leeds Art Forms, supported by the DCSF Partnership Programme and the Arts Council. The school wished to develop links to other art forms and curriculum areas, music, media and English and challenge the traditional timetable pattern in the high schools.
