Carlisle Infant School

Cultural Capital

Cultural capital is the essential knowledge that children need to prepare them for their future success.  It is about giving children the best possible start to their early education. 

Leaders at Carlisle Infant School are routinely reviewing and using our curriculum to enhance the experience and opportunities available to all children, particularly the most disadvantaged.

This grid below indicates some of the many opportunities offered to our pupils to increase their cultural capital throughout their time at Carlisle Infant School.
