Heygarth’s History intent

We believe that learning about significant events and people in History should lay the foundations for an enquiring and questioning mind. The breadth of historical knowledge the pupil’s access and the exposure to how life was in the past aims to motivate the children to develop an understanding of our past and how history will shape their future. We will provide a curriculum that will drive the children to ask the question ‘Why? and How?’, develop their skills of enquiry and analysis as well as starting to question the information gathered and it’s reliability.

Our vision is that children will leave Heygarth with an enquiring mind that has developed a chronological knowledge of key events alongside the knowledge of significant individuals who have shaped society.
