History Curriculum Intent

A scholar’s historical understanding is fundamental not only to their historical journey but also to their wider academic success across the curriculum. A Kirk Hallam historian is empowered with historical knowledge that they can utilise to become well-informed citizens. They can form elegant and articulate opinions that allow them to understand where they came from and where they are going within the wider world.

The History curriculum has been designed with deliberate threads that carry through from KS3-5 and in line with the National Curriculum. These four themes are: Conflict and Tension, which demonstrates how society has often been forged through struggle; Changing Britain, so scholars know how the nation has transformed over time; Power and the People, demonstrating the relationship between ruler and ruled, and Revolution, which highlights the demands for absolute change and its consequences. These themes were selected because together they underpin every aspect of the development of society.

Scholars will be able to consistently support, evaluate and challenge interpretations of the past, using evidence derived from a range of sources. We show scholars how to interpret issues of the past and we want them to be inquisitive and form balanced opinions. We want scholars to be inspired and motived to pursue the complexity of the past beyond the classroom.
