"There is no life that does not contribute to history." - Dorothy West
History helps children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire children's curiosity to know more about the past.
Teaching equips children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
History helps 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.
