Statement of Intent
It is our intent for history in the school curriculum to help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world and to understand how events connect over time and have a legacy, often lasting until today.
Our history curriculum will be teaching the children chapters in the story which involves us all, up until today. We don’t want our pupils to see history as separate topics that they learn about but as connected events. Our history curriculum will help pupils understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and the relationships between them, as well as understand their own identity.
Pupils will gain an understanding of chronology and timescales.
We will inspire pupil’s curiosity and equip them to ask questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
The history subject leader is Mrs Veitch.
