History contributes to curriculum by stimulating pupils’ curiosity and imagination about the way of life of people living in the past in Britain and other parts of the world.

In learning about History pupils develop their understanding of the features and diversity of British society and how political structures, cultures, and beliefs have influenced the life and actions of people in the past. From this pupils develop their own sense of identity and that of present-day society. They are able to value their own inheritance and use what they have learned in making choices.

Learning History allows children to examine the different ways in which we can consider events in the past and from this they will understand the importance of using different sources of evidence and evaluating them.
