We teach History at our school in a way that inspires our children to want to know about the past. The curriculum includes historical events that have occurred in Britain from the earliest times to the present day. Our children are encouraged to consider these times and how people’s lives have been influenced as a result.
There are also opportunities for our children to know and understand about significant aspects of the history of the wider world. This includes the nature of ancient civilisations and the expansion and dissolution of empires. Our children are also taught the methods of historical enquiry; encouraging critical thinking, asking perceptive questions, weighing up evidence, making connections, and recording their own structured accounts.
Pupils develop knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history. They are encouraged 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 challenges of their time.
