Cultural capital is woven throughout all experiences and opportunities that we offer to our children!

We consider the cultural, spiritual, social and moral backgrounds of children and strive to ensure our setting reflects a diverse community.

Ofsted define cultural capital as,

‘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.’

When we are working with children, we must set our aside our own bias formed from our experiences and our childhoods and take into consideration covid impacts, the economic backgrounds and social backgrounds of our children.

Cultural capital is how well an individual is to succeed academically and engage in wider society.

To achieve this as a setting we promote inclusivity, offering a broad and rich curriculum giving children the best start!

  • We constantly consider and respond to the cohorts needs.
  • We welcome all of our families to participate in nursery life.
  • We explore food, music and cultures that are relevant to our cohort.
  • We explore the Beyond…exposing children to the wider world and communities.

Our children are curious and have the tenacity to enquire and explore. They will build an increasing awareness of themselves and who they are.
