Cultural Capital

What is a Cultural capital?

Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that children can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a child will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work. Cultural capital promotes social mobility and success in our stratified society. Cultural capital gives a child power and it helps them achieve goals, become successful without necessarily having wealth or financial capital. Cultural capital is having assets that give children the desire to aspire and achieve social mobility whatever their starting point.

Our Cultural Capital 

At Bandon Hill Primary School, our curriculum is designed to instil high aspirations in all of our children and to encourage them to become resilient, life-long learners who embrace challenges and continue to grow and develop their cultural capital. Our children will be inspired to follow whichever path they choose whilst being well-rounded, conscientious global citizens. Our DREAM values, understanding of SMSC and British Values enrich and underpin our curriculum to ensure Bandon Hill children are prepared and equipped to succeed in their futures in an ever-changing world.
