At Pomphlett Primary, we ensure that the National Curriculum aim of providing a ‘high-quality history education’ in order to ‘help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world’ is central to our history teaching.


We want children to be inquisitive about the past; to learn how to ask effective questions and be able to research and interpret evidence. An in-depth understanding of the historical periods studied will ensure that children build an appreciation of how life has been shaped, both in the British Isles and in countries that are further afield. Our coherent history curriculum will promote an understanding of chronology as children learn about past events and times through carefully structured historical narratives. We believe that high quality teaching will enable an understanding of the diversity that exists in society and ultimately will encourage children’s empathy for the lives of different people and a deeper understanding of their own identity.
