Ensuring our children experience a good history education is very important and we aim to help all our children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. History should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps children 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.
The document below explains the three I's- Intent, Implementation and Impact for History here at St. John's.
Intent- Our aims of education and overarching curriculum design here at St. John’s- Why we do what we do!
Implementation- Our curriculum and what we offer our children- What we do and how we do it!
Impact- Has our intent impacted on our learners? Does what we do make a difference to our children?
