History 2021 - 2022
‘People without knowledge of their past, origin and culture are like a tree without roots’ – Martin Garvey
At Boundary we believe that a high-quality history education will help pupils gain sound knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We aim to inspire pupil’s curiosity to know more about the past by equipping them to: investigate and interpret the past, build an overview of world history, understand chronology and communicate historically.
During History lessons pupils learn to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change over time, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time. Local history is also important to us and each year we celebrate the rich history of Blackpool during our Heritage Day.
