Our History curriculum is carefully sequenced and knowledge-rich curriculum, which champions the synergy between knowledge and skills. We recognise that obtaining knowledge and practising skills are connected and both are vital to the learning process.
A strong foundation of knowledge is needed to make the practice of skills meaningful. Southampton has a rich history, most significantly being a hugely significant port. We aim to ensure our pupils have a good understanding of our local history and how that fits within the broader history of our nation and world.
We aim to establish history as an individual subject discipline and our curriculum provides pupils with strong foundational knowledge that can empower and equip them with the skills to participate, challenge and reshape the world around them. We believe that every child can enjoy and succeed in History.
