Community and Cultural Capital
At Ankermoor Primary Academy, we continuously review how the education we provide contributes to the life-long experience of all our pupils and their families. We understand how the home, local area and neighbourhood all contribute to the educational experience of each pupil. We have worked extremely hard, and continue to do so, to ensure relationships between our school and community are upheld to a high and positive standard. We develop strong links with outside agencies, community organisers and projects to model respectable and positive relationships. This also supports children’s cultural capital experiences which prepares them to be model citizens as they leave our school and continue to progress into their next steps in education and adulthood in the community and wider world.
Cultural Capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours and skills that a student can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence. It is one of the key ingredients a student will need to be successful at secondary school, in further education and eventually their career and the world of work. At Ankermoor, we take every opportunity possible to enhance the cultural capital of our learners and equip them with the knowledge and experiences needed for society.
