History Statement of Intent

The Core Christian values at North Ferriby Church of England Primary School are Friendship, Forgiveness, Trust, Service and Creation. These values underpin our curriculum and enrich all aspects of our pupils’ education. Our curriculum prepares children for the future by developing Heathy and Safe, Trusting, Enterprising and Creative members of the local community. Embedded within our teaching and learning are opportunities for the pupils to understand the meaning and significance of the Christian faith.

At North Ferriby Church of England Primary School, History is taught in a meaningful and vibrant manner which brings events and historical concepts to life. Where possible, the history curriculum makes use of rich resources within the immediate and wider local area enabling children to develop an understanding of the history of their locality. Topics are informed by the national curriculum and the curriculum is carefully planned and structured to ensure that current learning is linked to previous learning. In line with the National Curriculum 2014, the curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past
  • Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement
  • Begin 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.
