What is the impact of History at All Saints'?

Growing Stronger Together in God's Love

Our carefully planned, enquiry-based curriculum supports children to become independent learners who don’t take evidence for granted - where they express their own opinions based on well-thought-out questions and answering those questions. We encourage an enjoyment of history through creative, memorable lessons grounded in historical fact and taught by enthusiastic teachers with strong subject knowledge. History at All Saints’ is a discrete and celebrated subject that strikes a balance between academic rigour and creativity. Substantive knowledge is continually remembered and reinforced, whilst taught alongside disciplinary knowledge that allows our children to secure their grasp of abstract terms such as ’civilisation’ and ‘migration’. Our engaging curriculum is carefully sequenced to build clear progression and depth of learning, with the revisiting of disciplinary knowledge over time and in a range of contexts.

In order to demonstrate that we have accomplished our aims, pupils at All Saints Primary School should:

  • Be well-motivated learners who can recall substantive knowledge with understanding.
  • Provide written responses that are well-developed through the year groups.
  • Be able to gather evidence and interpret sources, asking and answering pertinent questions with an understanding of bias.
  • Be able to express their own opinions using both substantive and disciplinary knowledge, in a range of contexts.
  • Have a depth of understanding in local, British and world history and be able to apply their knowledge
  • Have an age-appropriate understanding of chronology.
