History provides a means of exploring, appreciating and understanding the world and where we have come from, whilst inspiring their curiosity to know more about the past. History allows pupils to gain a better understanding of Britain, its past and that of the wider world. It contributes to the cultural, social, spiritual and moral life of children as they acquire knowledge of understanding about 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. History is the subject in which pupils learn the skills to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh up evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. It is essential to teach children to become historians so that they understand that the importance of where mankind has come from and how the world has been shaped.
