Our Vision for History
At St Mary's, we believe learning through history enhances the individual child's understanding of themselves, the influence of the past on their lives and their place in the wider community. We aim to give children the opportunity to acquire a sound knoweldge of history and the skills of historical enquiry. Through this the children will gain an informed understanding of the issues of their own race, gender and culture, and those of others. They are actively encouraged to celebrate diversity and to challenge negative, prejudiced and stereotyped views of other people, thus living the Gospel Values.
