The intent of our history curriculum is to ensure that pupils experience a wide breadth of study and enquire about an ambitious body of knowledge stored in their long term memory, which in turn will prepare them for future learning and life, including future careers.

The breath of our history curriculum is adapted to our beliefs about the needs of our pupils and our values as a school. We have agreed that within our history curriculum, Welton children need:

  • Opportunities to learn about the history of the local area and beyond
  • To learn about their place in time
  • To experience local history first hand through trips and visits
  • To appreciate history through aspirational visitors, role models and events for future careers

We build cultural capital through our curriculum by giving pupils the knowledge to be well informed and responsible citizens who understand and respect British Values.
