History

History is all around us and it has always been held in high regard at Rugby Free Primary School. At RFPS, our intent is that our children will receive a high-quality history education which will help them to gain coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time, children understand how the past influences the present.

At RFPS, our intent is that our children will receive a high-quality history education which will help them to gain coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time and for children to understand how the past influences the present. It is our aim for our history curriculum to be broad, balanced, exciting, diverse and ambitious for all learners.

In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning, our history curriculum is implemented sequentially from EFYS to year 6 to ensure that historical knowledge, concepts, vocabulary and disciplinary skills are built year upon year. Teachers use the long-term history overview, history knowledge and skills progression map and end points of learning to support them in appropriately challenging children and teaching knowledge and skills systematically whilst building upon prior learning. This supports children in ‘aiming high’, encompassing the school vision.

At Rugby Free Primary School, history is taught discretely across three half terms a year to ensure it is not diluted through other topics. We aim to provide opportunities for historical enquiry such as observing and examining evidence and exploring how evidence is used by providing enrichment opportunities by taking learning outside of the classroom by taking part in trips to local historical sites or using loan boxes and artefacts as sources to support learning. Additionally, our celebration days, for instance Black History Month or International Women’s Day, ensure appropriate diversity in significant figures that children learn about.
