Tyndale is proud to run a ‘Cultural Studies’ programme which has been specifically tailored to boost understanding and knowledge of its cultural diverse community and beyond. The programme is also a conduit to reinforce the message that the UK is a multicultural/multilingual society.
The programme aims to celebrate and nurture the diverse cultural and ethnic matrix of children and families in Tyndale school and its serving community while emphasising the richness of British plurality and importance of shared values and cohesion amongst all citizens.
Metaphorically, pupils 'travel' to a different country each week with their Tyndale passport. Lessons, enable children to celebrate and delve into different cultures and traditions within the UK and around the world. The programme endeavours to foster a united community where tolerance, appreciation, understanding and respectful outlook underpins everyone’s actions.
In addition to the knowledge that is taught, pupils are also taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children's confidence, we strive to stimulate and encourage children's curiosity about language.
