We have established links between the schools in SHARES; links between the two curriculum areas; and a commitment in sharing resources.

The project in it’s context was to motivate children to find out historical information, to encourage use of library services and establish a series of workshops, where the links between the new history and English curriculum can be identified.

There are lead practitioners across the cluster, who lead and manage the resource boxes. The project has also included interactive workshops, staff CPD and up-skilling of history subject leaders.

All funding was spent in creating history project boxes, and high quality resources for the alliance schools to access.
