NOTES: This is one of the images taken for 'Manplan 4: 'The Continuing Community' in Architectural Review, vol. 147, 1970 Jan. This was an experimental school built for the Plowden Council which in 1967 published the report, 'Children and their Primary Schools', reviewing Primary education in England. The report was widely known for its praising of child-centred approaches to education. It was the second such primary school, (the first being Eveline Lowe in Camberwell) built by the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) in consultation with the Department of Education & Science, but designed by the Greater London Council rather than the latter.
