Cultural Capital

Ofsted added the term 'cultural capital' to their inspection handbook as part of its 2019 update.  It defines it 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.

Chief Inspector Amanda Spielman explained:

By 'cultural capital', we simply mean the essential knowledge, those standard reference points, that we want all children to have.  So for example, it’s about being able to learn about and name things that are, for many, outside their daily experience. 

It is for the school to decide what is 'essential knowledge' for our pupils and as such, our curriculum outlines the cultural capital we want our pupils and students to learn about; with due regard to relevance for their particular needs as young people with specific needs in our mainstream world.
