Our history curriculum aims to enable pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, and to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils 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.
History is taught alongside geography through our Humanities topic cycle.
Teaching is supported by fieldwork and offsite visits so that children gain an understanding of their local history.
