History

History Vision

We aim to offer a high-quality history education that will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire children’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip our children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, use and consider the reliability of a range of sources and develop their own perspective and judgement. History helps our children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups from the past and present, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
