Our History curriculum aims to ignite our children’s curiosity to know more about and fully appreciate the story of our past. It is carefully planned and structured to allow every child to gain a deep, coherent knowledge and understanding of not only our school’s own rich history within the context of our local area but also that of Britain and the wider world.
We are determined that, alongside historical knowledge, there is a high focus on the development of specific historical skills that will equip children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, analyse evidence and develop perspective and judgement.
Through the teaching of history, we endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
‘The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.’
