Our history curriculum inspires fascination and curiosity, encouraging pupils to feel connected to the past. It helps pupils to understand the process of change within their local area, country and the wider world and provides opportunity to marvel at the richness and diversity of human culture. History teaches children empathy, how to ask questions, weigh evidence and consider validity. Pupils will establish a coherent sense of chronology and make comparisons across periods studied. Crucially, in learning about the past, they will also learn about themselves and the world in which they live.

We support our history curriculum by subscribing to the Historical Association; through school trips; and visitor demonstrations in school.

Our Golden Threads

In History, we become citizens of the world by appreciating history from around the world.

We are lifelong learning by showing curiosity about the past and understanding that this impacts our lives.

Our learning prepares us for later life by giving us the knowledge and skills to create a future that has developed from the past.
