History

Departmental Objective:

The importance of history is that it helps pupils develop their own identities through an understanding of history at personal, local, national and international levels. It helps them to ask and answer questions of the present by engaging with the past.

Pupils find out about the history of their community, Britain, Europe and the world and they develop a chronological overview of events that enables them to make connections with different periods and societies.

History prepares pupils for the future.  It equips them with knowledge and skills that are important in adult life. Moreover, it encourages mutual understanding of the historic origins of our ethnic and cultural diversity and helps pupils become confident and questioning members of society.
