At Valley View, our aim is that children gain a broad understanding of Britain’s past and the wider world through exploring topics which align with our school’s core values. Children will become reflective learners, who will develop a lifelong love for history and will be able to question the world around them, even when it is complex.
Our history curriculum aims to make children community minded with an appreciation for the historically rich area they live in as well as an understanding about how historical events have influenced their own lives today. Our topics reflect diversity and aim to highlight how societies and relationships between different groups of people have changed on a local and global scale over time.
Our aim is that children gain an understanding of democracy and that our history curriculum will enable them to be socially confident citizens. They will learn to speak up for themselves and others through our history topics, as well as learn important life lessons about right and wrong from examples throughout history.
