Cultural capital is the accumulation of knowledge, behaviours, and skills that a child can draw upon and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a learner will draw upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work. The enrichment opportunities we provide at Annecy look to build up this cultural capital, which in turn will promote social mobility and success in society and in life.
We recognise that for children to aspire and be successful academically, and in the wider areas of their lives, they need to be given rich and sustained opportunities to develop their cultural capital.
Reconnecting learners and their marine environment is at the heart of our Wild Beach ethos. Living so close to the sea is the perfect space to learn with easy access.
At Annecy Catholic Primary School, we recognise the vital importance of promoting and understanding of the natural world and see the Wild Beach programme as an ideal medium for delivery.
We would like to thank the Sussex Wildlife Trust for their continued support in enabling us to deliver this inspirational educational opportunity.
At Forest School all participants are viewed as:
The learner-centred approach interweaves with the ever-changing moods and marvels, potential and challenges of the natural world through the seasons to fill every Forest School session and programme with discovery and difference.
