At St Alban's we are historians!
"The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future."
We want all our children to develop and experience:
a real passion for history and an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops their sense of curiosity about the past and their understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways.
an excellent knowledge and understanding of people, events, and contexts from a range of historical periods and of historical concepts and processes.
the ability to think critically about history and communicate ideas very confidently in styles appropriate to a range of audiences.
the ability to consistently support, evaluate and challenge their own and others’ views using detailed, appropriate and accurate historical evidence derived from a range of sources.
the ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past, formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry.
a respect for historical evidence and the ability to make robust and critical use of it to support their explanations and judgments.
