At Trinity Academy Akroydon, our intent when teaching history is to stimulate each child’s curiosity, in order for them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding.

History is all around us. The study of history ignites children’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time, children understand how the past influences the present. History enables children to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. We recognise that what children learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values.
