At Harby C of E Primary teachers strive to promote curiosity and a love of learning about the past. We believe that exploring History makes a valuable contribution to the children's understanding of all aspects of life, giving a sense of pride, identity and heritage. We have designed a thematic approach to the curriculum to empower every child with the knowledge, understanding and skills to become young historians. By following the National Curriculum, we aim to equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. 


Our History curriculum is organised to ensure breadth, balance, continuity and progression in topics across the school. We believe that it is essential to engage our pupils with relevant, exciting and challenging learning topics. Whilst gaining historical knowledge within these topics pupils will use and build upon: prior knowledge; understand how British values relate to History; continually gain a range and depth of historical knowledge and chronological understanding and develop the skills to appropriately use research and sources to consider historical information.
