History in Our School

The aim of history teaching here at Newhey Community School is to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past through historical enquiry. We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity and cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. They learn to value their own and other people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and by considering how people lived in the past they are better able to make their own life choices today. In our school, history makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how Britain developed a democratic society. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events, and by doing so, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
