‘Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.’
Atwood believes that a high quality History education will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
Our intention for historical enquiry within the Atwood Curriculum is to:
- Teach and equip children to ask perceptive questions about the past
- Think critically
- Weigh evidence
- Sift arguments
- Develop perspective and judgement
Children at Atwood will 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.
