History Aims

At Prince of Wales, we follow the guidelines set out by the National Curriculum. Therefore, our history curriculum aims to give a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and understand the complexity of people’s lives and the changes that have taken place. This knowledge will enable the pupils to understand how to be good and responsible global citizens today as history has the power to help us understand other societies and cultures.
Studying history helps children to understand their place in the world, and in the long story of human development. And it challenges them to make sense of the similarities and differences in human experiences across time and place. Amanda Spielman – Ofsted’s Chief inspector.

Our History Curriculum

At Prince of Wales, our curriculum is planned in accordance with the National Curriculum. Our history curriculum aims to give children an understanding of the features of a wide range of historical periods, influential people and civilisations as well as the links between them. Black history month is celebrated in October and woven into the curriculum throughout the year. Key historical events such as Remembrance Day are commemorated in assemblies.
