Headteacher Margaret Goodwin has introduced the International Primary Curriculum to her pupils and parents at Warren Farm Primary in Kingstanding, after discovering many of them hadn't even been to the city centre.
The school, situated in Birmingham, believes the new curriculum has broadened the perspective of pupils and also started to revive achievement and aspiration.
Its cross-curricular and thematic approach has proved a great success in engaging pupils of all years, while its emphasis on parental involvement has also helped highlight the value of education in a community dogged by long term unemployment.
