History Vision Statement
Developing curious, critical and reflective thinkers, who understand that our past shapes our future.
At Botley School, pupils will follow a History curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which enables children to enquire, research and analyse in History. Children will have a coherent understanding of Britain’s history as well as that of the wider world and the chronology that underpins both. Children will know more, remember more, understand and reflect more.
