''We are not makers of history. We are made by history.''
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The curriculum at St Richard’s aims to ensure that all pupils: Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past; Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement; Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. We have an enquiry-based approach that encourages our children to apply their own knowledge and skills to new topics as they are taught. Through History children will see the diversity of human experiences and understand more about themselves as individuals and members of British Society.
