History

Intent

At Cabot we believe that students deserve a broad, well-rounded, ambitious history curriculum that celebrates excellence and develops their knowledge and understanding of British history and the wider world.   We aim to provide a curriculum that supports the learning as children progress through our school and beyond.  Providing them with vast learning experiences both inside and outside of school and working in partnership with the local community really builds their cultural capital.  We believe and understand how important it is that the curriculum is inclusive and speaks to who our children are and reflects the worlds they come from.  It is important that our children can see themselves in the learning that they do and become responsible members of society.  Through our history curriculum we intend for our children to:

  • Be critical thinkers
  • Be open and understanding to other cultures
  • Have a knowledge of British history
  • To appreciate local history 
  • To work in partnership
  • Confidently ask questions
  • Challenge misconceptions
