Cultural Capital

Our understanding of ‘knowledge and cultural capital’ is derived from the following wording in the national curriculum:

‘It is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.'

Pupils are explicitly taught core sayings and phrases which they will come across in everyday life as well as in the texts that they read. We have taken advice from a variety of sources, including the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE) to ensure our core reading list is the very best in children's literature. Our core poetry, fiction and non-fiction texts are shared with pupils in lessons as well as during story time- part of the day which is protected. We believe every child has a right to be read to. 

There are works of art, songs and pieces of music which we believe every adult should at the very least be familiar with. Therefore, we have devised a core list. One person's list of core knowledge is different to another person's, however, we are confident that our list ensures we are equipping our pupils with enough so that when they are adults, they  are able to walk into any room, anywhere in the world and have a conversation with anyone about anything.
