St Peter’s Curriculum Intent

 

“Cultural literacy is important and if you don’t know the key facts for the society in which you live, you’re permanently disadvantaged for life.”- Sir Michael Barber

 

The term "cultural literacy" was used by Professor E. D Hirsch.  His work referred to having the ability to understand and participate fluently in a given culture, and for us that is our British culture. A culturally literate person knows the alphabet, grammar, and a good set of vocabulary, which they gain and develop over time. They are able to talk to and understand others of that culture with fluency. They also have the skills to talk to and understand other cultures. They can participate in their own culture especially in areas regarded as key cultural strongholds such as business, literature, art, education, history and religion. The culturally illiterate person fails to understand their own or other cultures, references to past events, expressions, names, places, etc. and therefore are disadvantaged.
