At Normanton-on-Soar Primary School, we aim to stimulate our children’s interest and understanding about the events and lives of people who lived in the past.


Our curriculum provides children with knowledge of significant events in British history and those in the wider world, whilst appreciating how things have changed over time.


Our history curriculum is carefully mapped out so that all pupils leave the school equipped with an understanding of the past that paves the way for their future. Throughout their journey in history, pupils will acquire an extensive knowledge of places and people and significant events through time.


We support pupils to develop their ability to ask perceptive questions, think critically, analyse evidence, examine arguments, develop judgement, and understand differing perspectives.


There are four core pillars that underpin our history curriculum: historical enquiry, historical knowledge, historical concepts, and communicating historical findings. Identifying and combining these core pillars work towards our overall goal of history education – gaining clear historical perspective. With clear historical perspective, our pupils will be empowered to be active global citizens who understand the connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short and long-term timescales.
