At Fairfield Park Lower School, we value History. WE ARE HISTORIANS!

At Fairfield Park Lower School, we intend to foster a love for history, as we learn about the people, communities and events from the past.

A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We will promote the historical skills of chronology, developing arguments for and against and debating ideas.

It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

History helps pupils to understand the complexity 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.
