"Where a love of learning grows"

  2. Cultural Capital

Cultural Capital

Cultural capital in the classroom refers to the use of culturally based teaching methods and resources that help pupils learn about their own culture and the cultures of others. Using cultural capital in the classroom can help pupils develop a better understanding of themselves and others. This will lead to them to lay strong foundations for  their education, careers and social development.
