The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School

Following Jesus, The Good Shepherd, in all we say and do.

In this section...


At The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School it is our intent to provide a history curriculum that will instil in our pupils a life-long love and appreciation of history.

Through studying a rich, varied and exciting history curriculum we aim for our children to understand the past and recognise similarities and differences between eras. We want our children to learn from History, to understand change and societal development and to be able to develop their own views, arguments and opinions about the past. They will develop the skills to appropriately use research and sources to consider historical information and to develop a range and depth of historical knowledge and chronological understanding.

We aim for history to be a lived experience, and arrange visits or visitors to enrich the children’s understanding. Opportunities will exist for children of all ages to experience learning beyond the classroom.
