History

Intent

Learning about History helps pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

 

We want to inspire pupils’ curiosity to want to know more about the past.

 

Our teaching equips 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)
