"We are not makers of history. We are made by history" - Martin Luther-King, Jr.
We believe that our History curriculum will allow children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We recognise the important role that History plays in preparing our children with skills that they can use for life; raising their aspirations, understanding how to be a good and responsible citizen, understanding how society changes and develops and a context in which to understand themselves and others.
Through our History curriculum, we strive to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and to know more about the past. Our curriculum provides children with opportunities to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through the teaching of History, we endeavour to teach children 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. We believe that teaching History in this way is important in broadening children's horizons, challenging preconceived ideas and developing life skills in order to prepare them for high school and beyond.
