At Chaddesley Corbett Primary School we integrate the teaching and learning of History into a wider thematic curriculum. At some points during the year, History will be the main basis for the theme whereas at other times, it will be more incidental. We believe that high quality history teaching should give pupils a coherent, chronological knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. Teaching opportunities encourage pupils to ask questions and think critically about past societies, their achievements, changes over time and how the past has contributed to the modern world. The subject is a vehicle for the application of the key skills learnt in English and Maths lessons and also enables the pupils to further develop their understanding of the British values of democracy, law, liberty and mutual respect. Historical enquiry skills are developed both in the classroom through traditional and digital technologies, and also through off site visits, visitors to the school and the use of historical artifacts wherever possible.
Chaddesley Corbett Endowed Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
