At Kentmere Academy and Nursery, the History Curriculum develops children’s knowledge of historical periods, events and significant individuals. Children learn key facts and concepts alongside skills such as chronological understanding, how to analyse and evaluate historical evidence, how to empathise with people from different eras and how to compare and contrast life in different periods. We try to make learning in History as real and engaging as possible, with regular trips, visitors, wow days and artifacts from our local museum. We use knowledge organisers and our curriculum journey folders to help us remember previous learning in History; we take these folders through school with us so that we can look back and make links.
Kentmere Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment. If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs Debra Gillespie.
