The Principle aim of history in our school is to help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, as well as inspiring children’s curiosity to know more about the past. History aims to broaden children’s empathy and tolerance through understanding the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change and the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups.

Our curriculum aims to help children build a progressive sense of how significant events or time periods fit within a chronology. EYFS and Key Stage One build a foundation of understanding of history within the past 500 years. This foundation is built upon in Key Stage 2 with the introduction of ancient civilisations and the history of the British Isles. Children in all Key Stages will have the opportunity to undertake a study of their local area.
