Our Intent

At Southwark the teaching of history is driven by the context of the school and its curriculum aims.

We want Southwark pupils to understand the complexity of their own other’s lives, providing a chronological framework which enables them through a continually developing love of independent learning alongside enthusiastic teaching, to draw conclusions and make connections from significant periods (e.g. events and/or individuals) within or beyond their living memory. With this in mind they will also gain an appreciation of how these events continue to shape/influence the world in which they live, and consider how this impacts on the future.
