Cultural Capital and SMSC at Longcause School

Cultural Capital at Longcause School


All pupils at Longcause come to use with a different wealth of experiences. We recognise that these opportunities provide pupils with the essential knowledge to be able to engage with their lives beyond Longcause and become active citizens in the way in which they are most fully able to. 


By enabling all of our pupils to have a broad range of experiences, we seek to develop their curiosity and connections to the world. We also intend to provide a breadth of experiences to foster an interest in something which pupils can continue to do for leisure to further enrich their future lives beyond Longcause School. This therefore is a critical factor in driving the priorities of our subject curriculums (further information about this can be found on the subject curriculum pages).
