History at Overseal Primary School
A high-quality History education provides the foundations for understanding the world we live in and how the past has shaped our present and future life. All pupils should be encouraged to be inquisitive and excited about the journey through History. A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils 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.
