History Intent Statement:

At Laburnum Primary School, we deliver the history curriculum to ensure that it is fully inclusive and accessible to every child. We aim to instil a love of history in our pupils by fulfilling the requirements of the National Curriculum and through a broad and balanced topic based approach.

We aim to offer high-quality teaching and learning that enables children to think critically, study sources of information and ask and answer perceptive questions. Our curriculum has been carefully planned and structured to ensure that, in line with the National Curriculum, all children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world within a chronological framework. History supports 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.


At Laburnum, we aim to encourage pupils to understand historical concepts within social, political, cultural and economic contexts, which allows pupils to make connections and allow their knowledge of world history to influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.
