At St Patrick’s we are guided by the National Curriculum for History. This curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
To meet these objectives, we have planned a curriculum where history lessons provide our children with the knowledge they need to prepare them for future success [cultural capital]. Our intent is that the teaching of History will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past and to know more about the past. We aim to enable children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Through the teaching of History we endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
