Our Intent

At Petham Primary School it is our intent to provide children with a high-quality education in History that ignites their curiosity about the past, present and future. The curriculum immerses students in a range of cultures that enables them to have a critical outlook on the world. It is our aim to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people, deliver a carefully sequenced curriculum to give students a broad understanding of the chronological development of British history, enhance the students understanding of their local history and develop and use their skills in enquiry, analysis, evaluation and argument.
