'Let your light shine' (Matthew 5:16)

British Values - History Education

In studying History, pupils explore how the past influences the present, how beliefs and cultures influenced peoples' actions and what past societies were like. Through History children will see the diversity of human experience, and understand more about themselves as individuals and members of British society.


A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. The national curriculum for history aims to ensure that all pupils know and understand the history of Britain as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day: how people's lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world.
