Curriculum Intent Statement for History


In History, we develop the children’s Knowledge and Skills in line with the school’s vision for knowledge and skills based curriculum.

We inspire Creativity through a topic based approach that incorporates other curriculum areas.

We encourage Discovery through children asking perceptive questions, thinking critically and sifting through arguments.

We foster a Curiosity by providing a Wow! activity at the start of each new topic and engaging lessons throughout the topic.

We develop Independence by offering a child-centred approach to studying history and opportunities to consider their own identity when learning about the past.

We instil Resilience by helping pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change and the challenges faced in our time.


As a result, the children Respect and Value the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups as well as developing a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and the wider world.


They are becoming Lifelong learners.
