Identity, Diversity & Cultural Capital
Welcome to the page for our topic of Identity, Diversity and Cultural Capital, or as the children may know it by the whole school child friendly name, ‘My World and My Place In It.’ All year groups may have their own topic name based around this whole school theme also.
The Identity Team is jointly led by Mrs Mason and Mrs Garrett and also includes Mrs Chalmers and Mr Hillier.
Intent: is the shared aim of every child enjoying access to a stimulating and engaging education, the impact of which will prepare children to play a positive role in society. To develop positive values towards the world and the people in it. To have a sense of belonging within their world and demonstrate tolerance and care to others. To be a socially responsible member of the community who takes pride in their self, locality and culture.
The main drivers that this topic are based on are:
- A sense of belonging
- Being socially responsible
- Pride of self, locality & culture
A more detailed breakdown of our main curriculum drivers involved in this topic are:
