History

In the History curriculum the pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world is encouraged. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Pupils are taught to consider how the past influences the present, what past civilisations were like and how beliefs and cultures had an effect on people’s actions. It should help 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. As they do this, pupils develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people.

We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Thus they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.

In our school, history makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how Britain developed as a democratic society. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
