Our Catholic Mission is to enable every child to have an active mind, a sense of empathy and compassion, aspiration and ambition so that they become what God calls them to be.

History

Our history curriculum aims to help pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. To help pupils to understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. To make sense of what has happened in the past pupils must be able to make connections. To be truly knowledge rich we must ensure what is taught sticks and is built upon. The planning of our curriculum involves knowing not just what pupils are learning but why, and how this will be built upon later. t
