Cultural Development

CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT: refers to a pupils developing understanding of beliefs, values and customs in social, ethnic and national groups different to their own.

At Newbridge this is achieved by:

  • Providing children with opportunities to explore their own cultural assumptions and values
  • Celebrating the attitudes, values and traditions of diverse cultures(Geography; RE; History; Literacy; Library; Assembly; Art; Dance; Music; celebrating festivals.
  • Recognising and nurturing particular gifts and talents (Singing in Guildhall Square, Drumming at Portsmouth cultural carnival, World drumming record in Guildhall, Dance Off)
  • Developing partnerships with outside agencies and individuals to extend pupil’s cultural awareness (e.g. drama, music and dance groups, links with local churches, links with the library,)
  • Reinforcing the school’s cultural values through displays and photographs
