Partnership with Leeds Museum and Galleries
We are part of an exciting partnership with Leeds Museum and Galleries. We access real museum artefacts to use in our classrooms and take part in workshops from over nine museums and galleries. Our staff also receive support with curriculum planning, teacher training and local resources which ensures that our children receive the best experiences object based and cultural capital rich learning.
Our Headteacher, Miss Carr, was interviewed by Neil MacGreggor for a Radio 4 series on The Museums that Make us.

"In a week telling the story of immigration, demographic change and refugees, Neil finishes in Leeds with evidence of one of the oldest peoples to visit and settle in this country. But the Roman child's sandal has been chosen by the museum as an example of their ambitious scheme which establishes partnerships with primary schools in the Leeds area and organises museum exhibits to go out to the schools themselves in special 'museum boxes'. It's a ground-breaking adjunct to the conventional 'schools visit', and allows teachers to make the most of a fantastic local resource. Neil talks to Head of Learning and Access Kate Fellows and local Head teacher Caroline Carr about the importance and success of the scheme."
Leeds Museums and Galleries are proud to have won the Museums and Heritage Show Learning Outreach Award 2021, and our Membership Scheme was a big part of this. To capture the impact that the Membership Scheme has had in our schools we commissioned a new evaluation report.
Bracken Edge's innovative way of working with Leeds Museums and Galleries is featured in this report
The evaluation aims to gain insight into:
• Motivations behind the relationships of the schools and LMG.
• An analysis of the dynamics within the partnerships.
• The impact museums can have on access to cultural capital in the school
• Whole school learning linked to local history and museum collections
