Victoria Park Academy

Changemaker School
Birmingham
United Kingdom
Partner Since 2014

Victoria Park Primary Academy is located in a very diverse community with its pupils speaking more than 40 different languages. Students are seen as responsible agents of change and are encouraged to partake in social entrepreneurship projects. Through its special curriculum the school teaches its students creativity and independence.

We are keen to engage with other Changemaker schools, as well as schools in our locality, researchers, parents and businesses. We are looking for opportunities such as language exchanges, international projects, teacher training or any other real world learning projects.

 

Changemaking initiatives:

  • Implements the NICERĀ© curriculum - challenge-based learning journey incorporating the Now, Independence, Creativity, Enterprise and local Region.
  • Uses the TASC wheels (Think Actively in a Social Context) in lessons.
  • Runs a whole school social enterprise.
