Crossways Schools’ History provision develops a passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning throughout the Federation. Our pupils will explore the past, developing their own historical curiosity and understanding of why the past can be interpreted in different ways. They will enjoy learning about a range of periods from history, gaining an understanding of a variety of historical concepts and processes. Pupils will learn to challenge their own and others’ views and preconceptions through appropriate and accurate historical enquiry; using a range of sources including quality teaching, trips, visits and themed days/weeks. Our curriculum will encourage pupils to explore topics and themes through approaches such as thoughtful discussion, questioning and analysis. As a result of this, Crossways’ pupils will leave our provision with the skills to understand the complexity of people’s lives and identify themes and patterns through history, as well as relating these to the challenges of their time.
