History

At St. Augustine’s Catholic Primary School, we value History.

WE ARE HISTORIANS!

A high-quality history education will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching history will equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. 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.

At St Augustine’s, we want our children to love history. We want them to have no limits to what their ambitions are and grow up wanting to be archivists, museum curators, archaeologists or research analysts. The history curriculum has been carefully crafted so that our children develop their historical understanding. We want our children to remember their history lessons in our school, to cherish these memories and embrace the historical opportunities they are presented with!

Bringing history alive is important at St. Augustine’s.
