Gildersome Primary School

Nurture, Aspire, Achieve




At Gildersome Primary we strive to ensure that our children have a sound chronological understanding which allows them to place, discuss and compare periods of history throughout Britain and across the world.

Through enquiry-based learning, children explore historical questions by studying a variety of sources relevant to their age and own life experiences. As they progress through the school, they learn to question these sources and understand how bias can affect people’s views on history and the important factors that have influenced people and place.

Our main aim is to develop a love of learning related to history; to make them curious historians who always strive to learn more and investigate periods of history in great depth.
