The school’s vision is modelled in the History curriculum, where we believe in inclusive education for all.

We believe that all of our students deserve a curriculum that meets their differing needs and enables them to fulfil their unique potential.

We want our students to be successful members of the community and to maximise their life opportunities. It is the intention of the curriculum to enable this.

Our curriculum intent is:

  • Coherently plan, sequence and adapt our curriculum to meet the unique needs of all of our learners.
  • Offer breadth of study at KS3 that is sequential in leading to study at GCSE level; all students will be stretched and challenged over 5 years, taking into account different starting points.
  • Develop effective literacy and numeracy skills through digital technology creating learners who are confident and competent readers, writers and speakers, with essential analytical skills needed for life.
  • Embed a range of wider enrichment opportunities and experiences, at least one per year, to ensure our learners have an educational experience that is rich and varied.
  • Encompass the whole school core values throughout the foundations to maximise the impact of the curriculum.

As a result, the History curriculum will:

  • Ensure that our students have a broad and detailed body of historical knowledge that covers key aspects of both British and world history, to give them an understanding of both our own and other cultures.
  • Ensure that our students can develop historical skills to help them explain their own substantiated opinions.
  • Develop digital skills to remove all barriers to learning, ensuring that our students can analyse evidence and interpretations with confidence.
  • Develop effective literacy skills that creates learners who have the knowledge to write and speak confidently and effectively in History; understanding the important of literacy when analysing evidence.
  • Ensure that our students appreciate the importance of History in the development of life skills and employability. Ensure that our students develop a passion for History and understand the multiple important benefits to having a depth of knowledge and how this links to their wider education.
  • Ensure students are challenged and stretched by developing their leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative and communication skills in order to provide foundations for every aspect of school life.
