History Curriculum

The aim of our primary history curriculum is for pupils to gain a coherent and chronological understanding of the past. Pupils will study world, British and local history, paying particular attention to ancient civilisations and early British history up to 1066.

The curriculum is deliberately sequenced, with historical vocabulary and concepts carefully built up year by year, in a logical progression. Children gain a broad comprehensive understanding of the sweep of history as well as the complexity of specific aspects of the content.
