Cultural Capital

Cultural Capital

"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 and appreciation of human creativity and achievement." 


At Yeading, this means the knowledge children need to be able to think for themselves, to understand the circumstances within which they live, to recognise systems within society, to ask questions and know how to find answers. It is the intention of our school to address social disadvantage by developing pupils’ cultural capital. As with knowledge, those with cultural capital can gain more as they move through society with much more power than those who do not have it. It is important that our community knows that cultural capital is not just an ‘add-on’ that can be ‘done’ through trips or through musical instruments. 

We have embedded cultural capital into the fabric of our curriculum.
