“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.” Theodore Roosevelt

We offer an ambitious history curriculum, which helps pupils to understand that history is the narrative of the past and that they are the characters in the narrative of shaping the future. Children will gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of British history and that of the wider world. We always strive to inspire children’s curiosity to know more about the past, and to investigate how events in history have had an impact on their lives today. 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. Teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, examine and interpret evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. As a Rights Respecting school, all children are encouraged to think, reflect, discuss, debate and evaluate historical events in order to support their learning; to think and act as historians; and to develop their empathy and global citizenship. British Values are taught within the History curriculum. Children will learn about how people from the past have influenced and shaped the country in which we live, they will learn to value diversity and will explore democracy and the rule of law across various periods of History. We want to equip pupils with not only the minimum statutory requirements of the History National Curriculum but to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
