History Mission Statement 

At our school, we don’t view History as simply facts and dates, but see it as a chance for our children to become detectives and explore the past in exciting ways. We want our children to be open minded about the past, as well as giving them the skills needed to enquire, analyse, interpret and problem solve. We want them to understand how people lived in the past and begin to make links between the past and modern times. We encourage first-hand experience wherever possible; visits, interactive workshops and visiting experts play an important role.

We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Therefore, they learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain.

Geography Mission Statement 


At our school, we want the children to develop their knowledge of people and places and to understand the physical, social and economic forces which shape those places and the lifestyles of the people who live there.

We see Geography as the study of real places and of how the people living there are influenced by and affect the environment of those places. Geography explores the relationship between earth and its people. It studies the location of the physical and human features of the earth.

Our geographical studies cover knowledge of physical and human features locally and in the wider world. They use a wide variety of sources, including maps, the internet and photos to establish the location of countries, cities, mountain ranges, rivers and seas or oceans. Children are also introduced to the economic and environmental factors which affect development and sustainability.
