At Dean Field Primary we believe that high quality History lessons inspire children to want to know more about the past and how to think and act as historians.
In History pupils are encouraged to question their understanding of the past allowing them to enjoy all that History has to offer.

Through the use of artefacts, visitors and educational visits, pupils gain an in-depth understanding of significant events in British history as well as appreciating how things change over time.

We believe the study of history inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the wider world. It also helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, political, cultural and economic background.

Without History, there would be no future!
