Peterborough Curriculum Case Study: Bishop Creighton Academy and Peterborough Cathedral
RSA Area Based Curriculum projects are designed by schools in collaboration with a local community partner; supported by local expertise and context; and taught using the local area as a classroom.
In 2010 we recruited schools in Peterborough to pilot this approach to curriculum development with the aims of:
- Creating learning experiences that were engaging for children from all backgrounds
- Increasing children’s understanding of and attachment to the place where they live
- Embedding schools more deeply within their communities and localities.
