‘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.'
What is Cultural Capital?
Cultural Capital at CPS
Every child and family who joins our school will have their own knowledge and experiences that will link to their wider family and culture. This might include: languages, beliefs, traditions, cultural and family heritage, interests, travel and work.
When we returned to school in September 2021, each class was given the name of a person as their class inspiration and mascot. A person who had perhaps overcome adversity and challenge in their life.
Our Early Years classes are now named after Captain Tom Moore, the author Julia Donaldson and Mother Theresa.
Year 1 classes are named after the astronaut Tim Peake and author Beatrix Potter;
Year 2 classes are Florence Nightingale and Mahatma Ghandi.
Year 3 classes have Dr Martin Luther King and fossil finder and palaeontologist Mary Anning as their inspiration.
Year 4 classes are named after Greta Thunberg and local Olympian Adam Peaty.
Year 5 classes have Anne Frank and Stephen Hawking
Year 6 classes are named after Marie Curie and Marcus Rashford.
