Working with schools

We engage regularly with local schools in the UK areas in which we build. We hold health and safety talks with schools close to our developments, focussing on the fact that building sites are dangerous places and not playgrounds.

We are also supporting the charitable Go4it campaign to help schools develop a culture of creativity, innovation and adventure. We have identified 24 schools, each near one of our offices, and we are providing one year of funding for Go4it in each of these schools.

During 2010 we also introduced ‘Changing Lives, Changing Communities’, which is a curriculum‑based UK schools history project available as a free download on our Web site. It encourages pupils to look at how homes and communities have changed in the past 100 years and includes a local history study, a comparison of Victorian homes and lifestyles with modern day and an insight into the period’s inventions.
