SOUTHWARK PRIMARY SCHOOL
We worked with Southwark Primary School from the start of the visioning process to facilitate staff, student, parent and community engagement as they imagined and shaped their new school.
We involved staff through a series of interactive workshops and a whole school INSET day, and supported them as they designed and delivered a whole week project with children about their dreams and aspirations for their new school.
We used a variety of approaches to help staff to imagine how their new school, and new approaches to learning, might be. These included drama, song and poetry, visual mapping, what if? questions and storytelling. Our work helped to create the space and climate for people’s creativity and imagination to flourish, and then through our involvement in preparing the design brief and working with the project architects (Capita), we were able to ensure that these ideas became a key part of the fantastic new school design.
