History is the story of where we come from. It helps us to understand our culture, our relationship with the wider world and our rights and respobnsibilities by providing children  with their knowledge of their historical past to enable them to better undesrtand the world today.

Our aim at Farrington Gurney is to ignite their curisoity by providing them with a range of experiences both practical and investigative where they are encouraged to find out and ask questions about the past. Where possible, we include educational visits for the children so they are able to set a context for what they are learning.

History is taught as a discrete subject. Our overview for history can be found mapped in the curriculum overviews. We ensure that history knowledge meets the requirements of the National Curriculum and that skills are built upon progressively as children move through the school.
