Curriculum Intent

History Curriculum Intent


At the Academy of Cuxton Schools, we aim to stimulate the children’s curiosity and understanding about the knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, through the encouragement of posing their own historical questions and thinking critically about the subject.

We work to develop an understanding of chronology as well as a perception and awareness of how the local area has changed over time.

We want our pupils to understand the complexities of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

Our bespoke history curriculum is enhanced through our themed events such as Black History month, visitors, use of artefacts, day trips and drama.
