We aim to deliver a high-quality history education that engages, inspires and challenges our pupils, providing them with the knowledge and skills to engage and develop an understanding of how events through time have shaped the world they live in. At SFSM we want all of our children to have an understanding of the world in which they live. Our History curriculum will be full of topics which foster awe and wonder and drive children to ask the question why. The History topics will help children to gain an understanding of the world around them and the process of change; as well as their own place within the world and the challenges of their time.
At SFSM we will ensure excellence in teaching and learning within a high quality learning environment, through leadership and within all aspects of school life. We celebrate our pupils’ ability to ask and answer historical questions and through exciting curriculum opportunities that cover all aspects of history including visits, we foster a deeper understanding of the peoples’ lives in the past
We create a positive atmosphere where everyone feels happy, safe and valued; where consistent encouragement, praise and effective feedback lead to success and development in historical understanding.
We allow children to explore through stimulating learning environments where they encounter challenging and creative learning experiences. Through the study of recent and past events, pupils begin to develop an historical understanding and knowledge that impacts on their own development in the subject.
