Cultural Capital

Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours and skills that a child 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.

At Henry Green we aim to equip our children with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. We recognise that for young children to aspire and be successful academically and in the wider areas of their lives, they need to be given rich and sustained opportunities to develop their cultural capital.

The school recognises that there are six key areas of development that are interrelated and cumulatively contribute to the sum of a student's cultural capital:


1. Personal Development

2. Social Development

3. Physical Development

4. Spiritual Development 

5. Moral Development 

6 Cultural Development


Each subject makes its own contribution to the children's cultural capital development. In order to inspire the children further and build on their resilience, we are using a passport of activities for each year group in addition to building on their cultural capital.
