Our Vision: At Cannon Lane children enjoy learning history whereby exciting cross-curricular links are made to other subjects, and regular school excursions help inspire and engage them.


A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement. 




All children should be provided with opportunities and be encouraged to:

  • Know and understand the history of the British Isles as a coherent, chronological narrative.
  • Know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world.
  • Gain and deploy a historically grounded understanding of abstract terms.
  • Understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence.
  • Understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used.
