RESPECT in every lesson, everywhere, every day
Our RESPECT agenda is embedded within our curriculum intent and aims for our students to become tolerant, empowered, fair and responsible citizens and artists. CAPA College aims to combine the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. This is delivered through everything we do – creative projects, lessons and particularly through our tutorial and careers programmes – CONNECT & REFLECT and Life After CAPA College.
We aim to allow students to develop a world-view and understand their place within it. We want them to be aware of sustainability, history and current events. Our approach aims to encourage empathy and understanding with a chance for students to explore their own perspectives, deal with differences of opinion, and be mindful of privilege and inequality in a safe, nurturing and creative environment.
CAPA College has a commitment to reflect and celebrate diversity, including minority and marginalised voices, across our curriculum and in everything we do. Our curriculum aims to be culturally rich and representative of society, ensuring that artists of all racial backgrounds, genders and sexualities are represented and their works explored. CAPA College also aims to continually reflect on and improve our own practice and welcomes an open dialogue with students, staff, parents, alumni and the wider community.
