At Ashby Fields Primary school, our History curriculum ignites children’s curiosity about the past and where they have come from.  Children gain historical knowledge and understanding from key significant periods of time, taught through our whole school topics.

The teaching of history in our school equips pupils to ask questions about the past, analyse evidence, think critically, appreciate different perspectives and develop informed judgements. We support pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We inspire pupils throughout the school year, celebrating important anniversaries, and re-visiting learning in a way that promotes appreciation for events from the past that shape our values today.
