History has always been held in high regard at Crudgington, with the school’s own rich history and in accordance with the context of the local area. Our History curriculum includes termly topics for all children from Year 1 to Year 6. We aim to offer a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We celebrate, and have incorporated, the rich history of our local area and the significant people into our curriculum. Our curriculum should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. Because of this, we feel it is important for the subject to be taught discretely, as well as incorporated within other curriculum subjects such as English and Art.
