What is the intent of History in our school?

At Cranfield Church of England Academy, we believe that a high quality History education helps our pupils to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past and use this knowledge to guide future beliefs and values.

How is History implemented in our school?


History is taught as an intrinsic part of the EYFS Curriculum and the Cornerstones Curriculum and is enriched by a variety of visits, visitors and events. Children cover the objectives outlined in the Cranfield Curriculum. In Early Years there are activities as part of the continuous provision, and directed activities which deliver objectives from People and Communities in Understanding the World. In Y1-4 teachers deliver History teaching as part of a unit of work planned using the Cornerstones Curriculum. Curriculum progression maps ensure children develop skills over a period of time in a logical sequential sequence. History skills and knowledge are assessed each term against the Cranfield objectives and reported in subject leader analysis reports.
