History Subject Statement


We believe it is essential that our young historians have a firm grasp on how historical events have shaped modern societies. Within our history curriculum, our pupils consider how the past influences the present and they develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people.

Our curriculum is carefully sequenced and progressive. It allows children to revisit themes throughout different periods of time enabling them to make comparisons and links within their substantive knowledge.

 Pupils are provided with rich curriculum enhancements through trips, workshops and historical experiences. They are given opportunities to recognise how historians study the past and consider how historical accounts have been constructed. History is all around us and it is our intent to fire pupils’ curiosity to ask questions and know more about Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
