History Curriculum Intent Statement




A high-quality history education should enable all pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past both in Britain and the wider world. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, 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. To develop their own strong moral compass for the future by learning from the mistakes of the past.



History skills equip students with many skills that are attractive to employers and enables them to prepare for the future. These include learning about people, countries, societies and cultures. Students will learn how to research, locate and sift facts, developing how to recognise propaganda or myths. Students will also learn how to present their findings so as to make sense to others. These skills are useful for a range of careers.



The teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically to develop their own perspective and judgement. This will enable students to analyse how the study of the past shapes the thinking, actions and values of young people in the present and the future. Students will develop the ability to ask the right questions and use a range of evidence with confidence and produce beautiful work, “crafted with pride.”  Learning will be supported by high quality and passionate teaching which models quality historical literacy.



Students will be provided with the knowledge and understanding to interpret the world in which they live in order to challenge or support the values of the future. In understanding their own identity, students will gain a respect for people of the past. They will develop the confidence to debate these views eloquently and become the leaders of the future.
