The school follows the history curriculum which is specified by the Department for Education. This covers the period from the Stone Age until the reign of Edward the Confessor. There are a number of local and thematic topics. Details of the periods covered by each year group are shown in the termly curriculum letters.

History fires pupils' curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Pupils consider how the past influences the present, what past societies were like, how these societies organised their politics, and what beliefs and cultures influenced people's actions. Children learn to ask questions and consider evidence from multiple sources. This begins to inform children's opinions about the modern world.
