PLACED and Our Place are passionate about delivering place-based education for and with children and young people. We have developed a suite of educational activities and resources that focus on places and people to support Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 5 programmes of study.

Our project is called Your Place Curriculum and is generously funded by the Ove Arup Foundation. The resources use the context of place and placemaking as a basis for enquiry-based learning, debate and discussion.

For Key Stage 2, we have designed a week-long scheme of work called Love Our Neighbourhood which can be delivered in full as a collapsed curriculum week or integrated into the school timetable as stand-alone activities. Activities are designed to unleash creativity, link to national curriculum and support Ofsted’s requirement for cultural capital.

For Key Stage 5, we have developed a series of 1-hour video interviews with professionals involved in placemaking aimed at A-level Geography students studying the Changing Places, Making Spaces unit. These videos offer enriching insight into real life placemaking, touching on topics such as regeneration, urban design and how placemaking can support health, wellbeing, community and address social inequality, inclusion, and climate change. The videos are designed to spark high level thinking and debate, while at the same time introducing young people to different careers in the sector.

All resources are free.
