Curriculum Intent for History.

Our vision here at Scargill is that a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. We hope to equip pupils with the skill to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We hope to instill in our pupils a passion for history. Here, history is brought to life, enabling children to explore like detectives and work like historians. 

We believe that as far as possible, history lessons should be biased towards practical lessons, with artefacts, ICT and drama playing a key part. Trips, visitors and ‘Wow Days’ also greatly enhance our History curriculum.
