What is the intent of History in our school?

At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we believe that a high quality History education helps our pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past which can be used to guide their beliefs and values for a brighter future.

How is History implemented in our school?

History is taught as an intrinsic part of the EYFS Curriculum and the Creative Curriculum in Years One to Four.

It is enriched by a variety of visits, visitors and events. Children cover the objectives outlined in the Cranfield Curriculum. In Early Years, activities form part of continuous provision, and directed activities which deliver objectives from People and Communities in Understanding the World.

In Years One to Four, teachers deliver History knowledge and skills as part of a Creative Curriculum unit of learning. Curriculum progression maps ensure children develop skills over a period of time in a logical and progressive sequence.

History skills and knowledge are assessed each term against the Cranfield Curriculum objectives.
