Our systematic approach to planning and teaching of history equips our pupils with the historical skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for the curriculum at Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world.
They should be able to describe key events in British history up to the Norman conquest, and have an understanding of both the inventions and achievements of ancient civilisations and their impact on life today, and key events of the modern age.
Pupils of all ages should understand how past events can be researched. Older pupils may be able to explain concepts such as the reliability of or bias in historical evidence, and take these into account when considering historical data. By doing so, they can become not just passive recipients of factual information, but enquiring and challenging thinkers who appreciate that there is much we can learn from the past, and have the skills and the passion for doing so in the future.
