Intent

At All Saints Academy, we strive to provide a curriculum that is broad, balanced, challenging, inspires curiosity, and fosters a love of learning. The vision for the All Saints Academy is rooted in the biblical teaching from the gospel of John and in the firm belief that ‘Every Child Matters Equally to God’ we strive to provide an excellent education for all our students; an education which brings out the best in all of them and prepares them for success in life.

We aim to develop an understanding of British history and that of the wider world. History students are given the opportunity to examine, interpret and evaluate a variety of sources in order to form opinions and make judgements about the past. Each is encouraged to think and behave as historians, archaeologists, and inquisitive thinkers.

We investigate how and why the world has changed as well as what we can learn from the past to make the future a better place. British Values are woven into the History curriculum promoting values such as mutual respect, tolerance, and individual liberty. As our pupil’s progress they will become equipped to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgment.
