Cultural Capital provides our children with the knowledge and skills to become positive and successful members of the community. We want our children to make a positive difference within their communities in the future.

Our curriculum reflects this by ensuring our children are given the foundations for understanding themselves, family and the community around them.

We aim to foster an understanding of British Values and endeavour to support Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural learning where we respect and embrace everyone's similarities and differences.
