At Ormesby Primary School, we aim to deliver a high-quality History education in which pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We offer a progressive and carefully sequenced History curriculum primarily using Pearson Primary History scheme of work with the addition of links to our local history e.g. Captain Cook.

The curriculum on offer is structured to be both broad and balanced, but also rigorous and engaging with children accessing a knowledge-rich curriculum that has been designed based on research-led teaching. Children are taught about the past in chronological order in discrete History lessons and within other curriculum subjects, such as English. Educational visits and expert visitors enrich our History curriculum bringing the past to life. We aim to inspire our pupils’ curiosity, equip our pupils with the ability to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence to make informed judgments and develop perspective.

Through our History curriculum, pupils will gain an understanding of the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. Therefore, we aim for our pupils to leave Ormesby Primary School as enthusiastic historians with a sense of identity, noting how events and significant people through history have helped influence the lives we live today and the challenges of our time.
