Our Historical Cultural capital

  1. We aim to ensure our History curriculum builds on previous knowledge and experience and exposes pupils to new opportunities in order to link their culture to a wider one.
  2. We aim to ensure our History curriculum reflects diverse voices - our pupils know the ‘best’ from all groups in society - including inter-generational, multi-faith,  gender neutral, mixed-race teaching and activities .
  3. We aim to enable pupils to make connections between people and events in different places around the world and between different historical eras.
