Camrose Primary School



'A good history education is so important to children's education. Studying history helps children to understand their place in the world, and in the long story of human development. And it challenges them to make sense of the similarities and differences in human experiences across time and place.'

The History Curriculum Progression Grid shows what will be covered by all children and how skills and knowledge are developed as the children progress through the school.

History Progression Grid

Ambition / Intent:

At Camrose, 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 and to know more about the people that came before them.

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, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time

Design / Implementation:

Carefully designed schemes of learning in History, which are aligned with the National Curriculum,  ensure consistency across the school giving all pupils access to equitable classrooms; where all pupils can participate and are encouraged and supported to develop a deep and sustained understanding of the history being explored.  We intend for our children to have real life experiences and learn about history in an active and creative way. Links to Geography and other subject areas are also explored.


Our History curriculum ensures that our pupils will become not just passive recipients of factual information, but enquiring and challenging thinkers who appreciate that there is much we can learn from the past in order to improve the future, and have the skills and the passion required to continue to do so.

Pupils will leave Camrose Primary:

  • Understanding how historical events have shaped the world they currently live in.
  • Demonstrating an ability to analyse information and make informed judgements.

Having developed enquiry skills in order to investigate own interests within a topic
