Social Capital Project

Social Capital Development Project

The governors and staff of The Hendreds CofE Primary School have been investigating the concept of social capital, with
specific reference to school.


As part of that programme, we invited the Very Reverend Professor Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford University,
to talk with us about the concept, one to which he has given significant time and has reflected deeply on. Martyn was very
generous, preparing an original 30-minute reflection on the theme, and participating in a very helpful Q&A session.


This package contains a video of Martyn’s reflection, a transcript of the reflection and a transcript of the Q&A session.


We hope you find it useful, as it was a very significant inspiration, challenge and encouragement to us.
