Cultural Capital in our Curriculum
Ferney Lee is a totally inclusive school with a diverse community. We warmly welcome all families regardless of their race, religion, gender, ability or disability and family circumstances, and know that each child and their family who joins our school will bring their own knowledge and experiences.
Cultural capital is the culmination of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a child can draw on and which demonstrates their cultural and social awareness, knowledge and competence. It helps give power; having assets that give children the desire to aspire, achieve and fulfil their potential, academically and socially, whatever their starting point.
At Ferney Lee, children benefit from a curriculum that builds on what they already know and understand. Enhancing the curriculum by gradually broadening and enriching these experiences and opportunities, is paramount to their ongoing development throughout and beyond their school life.
