At Holy Family, history is taught as part of a creative curriculum. We make every effort to ensure this is a rich and stimulating curriculum, aiming to inspire our children’s curiosity, encouraging them to engage with the world around them.

As historians, we help children to think critically and ask perceptive questions , developing a sense of chronology through learning about key dates, people and locations both in the UK and around the world.

Throughout the school there are opportunities for an exciting variety of trips which bring the children’s learning to life and offer opportunities for pupils to improve fieldwork techniques and learn from first hand experiences.

We follow the national curriculum for both geography and history and the links are provided below:


We strive for the children to progress as they move from year to year and a link for the learning progression in our school for history is provided below:
