History is held in high regard at Ripple Primary School. The school’s own history is celebrated and an inspiring feature of the school. The history curriculum at Ripple draws from and makes full use of the immediate and wider local area, enabling children to develop a deep understanding of the history of their locality and provide cultural capital opportunities for all of our children.

Topics are informed by the national curriculum and are sensitive to children’s interests, as well as the context of the local area. We use Kapow as our scheme of work which allows time for the pupils to think deeply about an area of learning in a topic before they move on to the next one.

They will have many opportunities to ask questions, discuss, communicate understanding and revise their ideas. This approach has led to the selection of some areas of knowledge in more depth within an area of study.

The history planning at Ripple is informed by current pedagogy and is in line with the National Curriculum Programme of Study for History (2014) and supports meeting the criteria of the new Ofsted Education Inspection Framework (2019).


The curriculum at Ripple Primary School aims to ensure that all pupils:

● Gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world which helps to stimulate pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past;

● Are encouraged to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement;

● Begin to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
