Cultural Capital and Enrichment

At Dundale Primary  School we are committed to ensuring children's education and experiences are rich in Cultural Capital.


The Department for Education defines Cultural Capital as "The essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement."
