History – Curriculum information

‘Our vision is to create Historians of the future! We will develop pupil’s understanding of British, local and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods they study.

Pupils will gain a coherent knowledge of changes within and beyond living memory and events that are significant nationally or globally. Pupils will explore past time periods and apply knowledge of key concepts and changes overtime.’
