Henbury Court Primary Academy

History

At Henbury Court we provide a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

Our history curriculum allows pupil to understand methods of historical enquiry and is designed to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. At Henbury Court we know that history helps pupils 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.

We select the content and sources in our history curriculum carefully so that children receive a balanced perspective, reflective of the diversity of the world, which actively celebrates black history and the contribution of women throughout the ages. We ensure our history units lend themselves well to our promotion and learning of British Values, with talks of democracy throughout the ages and discussions about the rule of law, tolerance and the rights of people
