Breakthrough in Oldham

mediumblue

Summary

Oldham is a divided town. Some of its primary schools cover a 100 per cent white catchment area whilst others are 100 per cent Asian.

In 2000, the LEA set up a linking project to connect 50 primary schools divided along ethnic lines.

In this programme we look at two schools in the scheme; Freehold Primary, which has children of mainly Asian heritage, and Mather Street Primary, a school with predominantly white children.

Here we see Year 3 children from Freehold take part in an RE lesson at Mather Street, whilst Mather Street's Year 5 does philosophy at Freehold.

Two other schools in the scheme have organised shared activities at an outdoor pursuits centre.
