Cultural Capital

At St Joseph's, Cultural Capital, is interwoven throughout our curriculum through our SMSC (spiritual, moral, social and cultural) provision.  It provides for our pupils, broader development, enabling them to develop and discover their interests and talents. For us, it is about offering our pupils a broad range of key life experiences and giving our children the opportunity to learn about things outside of their daily experience. It is about developing key character skills of our pupils, such as courage, resilience and respect.


We achieve this through:

  • the rich and diverse variety of books that we share with the children
  • sports
  • prioritising oracy
  • our assemblies
  • our school trips
  • in-school workshops
  • teaching children about a wide range of arts, including literature and music.
  • promoting key skills e.g. library skills, problem solving, team events
  • lunch-time and after school clubs
  • Enrichment Time
