History Policy (2019)

The aim of history teaching here at Orchard Community Primary School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past.

We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Thus they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.
