Statement of Intent

Through Jesus, light of the world, we ignite the spark of curiosity, creativity and individuality. 

At Killinghall, we believe that History enables children to be curious about the world we live in today. It helps the children to understand how and why the world has changed over time. History also allows children to ask questions and discover the impact that history has had on our lives today.

The History Curriculum at Killinghall draws from, and makes full use of, the immediate and wider local area, enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the rich history of their locality. By exploring key historical events and influential periods, our children will be challenged to think critically, use evidence and discuss how history has shaped their own lives. Intertwined with our own key concepts, our curriculum closely follows the National Curriculum for History. Our high-quality history education inspires our pupils to:

• Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, which inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past;

• Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement;

• Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

Overall, History at Killinghall allows our children to be curious, creative learners, and gives them opportunities to showcase their individuality through their interests, what they know and what they learn about the past. Our inclusive curriculum engages all children, regardless of their starting points, and entitles all children to the same quality of teaching and learning opportunities.
