History - Purpose of study
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.
