Stamford Bridge Primary School

​Fun, friendship and learning for life



The aim of history teaching here at Stamford Bridge School is to stimulate the children’s
interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. We teach children a
sense of chronology and through this they develop a sense of identity and a cultural
understanding based on their historical heritage. Thus they learn to value their own and other
people’s cultures in modern multicultural Britain and, by considering how people lived in the
past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.

We teach children to
understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to
investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis,
interpretation and problem-solving.
