The Salisbury Project
Citizenship entered the curriculum in England in September 2002. Active citizenship is relatively unknown in curriculum development yet it has been practised in most schools for many years.
Barclays New Futures is an award scheme which has supported community projects by secondary schools of every type throughout the UK since 1995. Its collection of case study material, carefully collected from the outset, has spawned many requests for information.
This project is an attempt to mine that resource for the experience of special schools during the last four years and look at it in some detail. Throughout this site there are examples and resources to support active citizenship and partnership working. The Salisbury Project has been developed to demonstrate how special schools can be integral to these practices and to encourage special schools to see themselves as the rich resource they are in the active citizenship arena.
This set of case studies has been produced by four special schools and the mainstream partners of two of them. Five were Barclays New Futures (BNF) award winners the sixth school was the special school partner of one of the award holders. They each feature environment related projects and illustrate effective active citizenship with community partners.
