"Every Child Flourishing"


Our curriculum intent for history is that all children will:


  • Develop a coherent knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world in a chronological narrative
  • Gain historical perspective
  • Understanding the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and the relationships between different groups, own identity and challenges of their time
  • Develop a wide historical vocabulary


A great history curriculum is very important at Courhouse. Our history curriculum enables the children to aquire the knowledge they need from the past to understand how they can have a positive effect on the future. It is an integral part of our curriculum design because knowledge gained from history underpins wider reading and all other subject areas.
