The Heritage Schools Award

The aim of the Heritage Schools programme is to make sure that:

  • Children develop a sense of pride in where they live
  • Children understand their local heritage and how it relates to the national story
  • Teachers are more confident in making effective use of local heritage resources in delivering the curriculum
  • Local historic context is embedded in the school's curriculum
  • Heritage providers are more connected to the needs of local schools
  • Parents are engaged in their children's learning
  • Communities are more deeply involved in the life of the school

As a school we have demonstrated all of these attributes and have been awarded the Heritage school award making us the first school in Oldham to have received such an award.
