Cultural Capital at St Elizabeth’s
Cultural capital is not something that can be ‘taught’. It is embedded within a broad curriculum through experiences, language, culture and traditions.
St Elizabeth’s curriculum is designed to encourage high aspirations in all our children and to encourage them to be resilient, life-long learners and to embrace challenges and new experiences.
A wide variety of afterschool clubs, trips, visitors and our status as a UNICEF gold accredited rights respecting school all go towards enriching our children’s knowledge and skills; empowering them to be to be globally aware citizens of the 21st century; and be successful in society. We encourage our children to think globally, not just locally, thinking about how they can take care of the wider world and the people within, preparing and equipping them to succeed in their futures, in an ever-changing world.
