"The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future." Theodore Roosevelt
At Westbury Park, our intent is that our teaching of History will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
We aim for it to inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past whilst building on their knowledge of historical events. We also aim to enable children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.
Through the teaching of History we endeavour to teach children to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background. Because of this, we feel it is important for the subject to be taught discretely as well as incorporated within other curriculum subjects such as English and Art.
