Preparing resilient learners in an ever changing world
'Vittoria Primary School is a happy place.' 'Pupils talk confidently and positively about the school.' Staff have high expectations for every pupil.' Leaders have made sure a broad curriculum is in place across the school.'OFSTED Oct 2021



Our history curriculum traces British history and the great civilisations of the world We aim to provide pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to appreciate our history and that of human creativity, endeavour & exploration through time. 


Pupils will be taught that historical study itself has changed. History is not merely a series of uncontested facts and events but a matter of debate with many standpoints to explore. Pupils will understand and appreciate that curiosity and critical thinking are essential tools for historians.





History skills are embedded within all history lessons and developed throughout their journey of the history curriculum. By the end of their primary education pupils at Vittoria  will:


  • Have a chronological understanding of British history from the Stone Age to the present day.
  • Be able to draw comparisons and make connections between different time periods and their own lives.
  • Be knowledgeable about world history such as the ancient civilisations of Greece and Anglo - Saxon Britain. 


 Pupils learn through enquiry based learning opportunities to gain a greater understanding of our local area. Teachers plan and create engaging and informative teaching and learning opportunities which take into account prior learning, plan for opportunities for assessment and identify suitable next steps.



We use a wide range of strategies to assess the knowledge, skills and understanding that our children have gained in each half-termly unit:


  • CPD to ensure that teacher pedagogy and assessment is secure.
  • regular feedback marking and pupil voice feedback.
  • subject monitoring, including book looks.
