History is crucial to our curriculum at Wellington Primary School to enable our children to develop into well-rounded global citizens that can engage meaningfully with the increasingly complex and confusing world around them.  

The History curriculum at Wellington has been planned so that children will: 

  • Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. 
  • Build a secure understanding of chronology and of how the past has impacted the present. 
  • Discover how historical sources can be interpreted in a variety of ways encouraging children to evaluate evidence in terms of usefulness and reliability. 
  • Be stimulated to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence and sift arguments. 
  • Develop perspective and judgement and have the vocabulary needed to do so. 
  • Use historical language to communicate their learning in a variety of outcomes and to a range of different audiences. 
  • Develop a sense of personal identity through learning about the past. 
  • Be inspired to take a lifelong interest in history.
