Intent for History 

As part of our history education, we intend for our pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We will stimulate our pupil’s curiosity in wanting to know more about the past, learn to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and make judgements. Developing these abilities will give our pupils life-skills that will remain with them throughout their education and helping all to strive and achieve.

Our intention is that history will support all elements of the curriculum by teaching transferable skills across all subjects and will engage pupils and enrich their experiences in school. Not only do we want pupils to have a strong content knowledge of historical events, but know and remember more using key vocabulary.
