At Welholme Academy we shape our History curriculum to ensure it is fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum that encompasses British values; ensuring the progressive development of historical concepts, knowledge and skills; and for the children to study life in the past. We believe the study of History inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the wider world. 

In ensuring high standards of teaching and learning in History, we implement a curriculum that is progressive throughout the whole school. History is taught as part of a half-termly topic, focusing on knowledge and skills stated in the National Curriculum.  These half-termly topics are formed around an enquiry question and focus on both local and world History.  Topics are planned to make links between previous History topics which have been taught.
