The intent of our History curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. We want our children to develop a desire to investigate the history of our country and other ancient civilizations, and learn the skills to continue to be curious outside of school and into adulthood.  We endeavour to provide a stimulating, engaging and challenging curriculum and learning environment as well as encouraging our children to follow and investigate their own interests.

As a result of this, pupils will increase and develop their historical skills, concepts and knowledge. They will increase their understanding of the present in the context of the past and be able to pinpoint what they are doing ‘now’ within the big picture. Our pupils will develop and use their skills in enquiry, analysis and evaluation and develop their interest in the past, arousing their curiosity and motivation to learn.


Our history curriculum covers the requirements of the National Curriculum and works to develop historical skills. Children learn about important historical events that helped to shape our country and the wider world; they also investigate the impact of important people and their contribution to history plus the legacy left behind.

Educational visits allow our pupils to see ‘history’ first hand and experience life in the past in order to draw on experience to make contrasts.

The pupils will learn through investigating, who, when, where, what and presenting their findings in a variety of ways and then following a personal line of enquiry.
