Every Child Matters – culturally diverse young people
Richard Walker is a school teacher at Margaret McMillan Primary School, Bradford. He has developed teaching ideas around angling and the environment for his year 5 pupils, which included a day out at a local fishery. The School is culturally diverse, though predominately British Asian. Every Child Matters is an important policy framework for Richard’s approach.
Alan Robinson from nearby Lilycroft Primary School, Bingley, attended the 2007 Academy. This means there are two qualified coaches with similar outlooks in the Bradford/Leeds area. Richard worked with the Dreamstore Education Action Zone in 2007 to add a FUNdaMENTAL aspect to learning.
