History

Purpose of Study

 

A high-quality History education provides pupils with a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire curiosity, integrity and should equip children to generate perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. The study of History supports children’s understanding of the complexities that affect people’s lives and have done through the centuries- such as gender equality and poverty. History helps pupils understand 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. Children are able to gain an understanding of peace and justice, and how their own actions, just like the historical events that have occurred the world over, will affect the future.
