History at Rillington Primary School

Our intent for our History approach is to ensure that pupils gain knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.

Our intent is for children to:

  • Achieve their absolute potential by having the highest expectations of their learning
  • Be confident to ask questions and extend their knowledge. This is enabled by positive relationships and nurture
  • Think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgement.
  • Understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups.
  • Feel proud of their own identity and the challenges of their time.
  • Take responsibility for their own learning and understand what process or key skill they are using to gain their History knowledge.

Geography at Rillington Primary School

Our intent for our Geography Curriculum is to inspire children’s curiosity and fascination about the world we live in and its people; in order to deepen their understanding and knowledge of the wider world around them and their place within it.

Our intent is for children to:

  • Achieve their absolute potential by having the highest expectations of their learning
  • Be equipped with geographical skills and knowledge that are progressive and transferable throughout their time and to their further education and beyond, through studying places, people and human and natural environments
  • Be confident to ask questions to extend and deepen their knowledge and understanding of the world.
  • Discover answers to their own questions through investigation, exploration and research.
  • Develop skills that are transferable to other areas of the curriculum and which can be used to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Stimulate excitement, creativity and critical thinking about the world that will equip them to make their own way in it.

Religious Education at Rillington Primary School

Our intent for our Religious Education (RE) approach is for pupils to:

  • The Principle Aim- as stated in 2019-2024 NYCC Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education
    “The Principle aim of RE Is to engage pupils in systematic enquiry into significant human questions which religion and worldviews address, so that they can develop the understanding and skills needed to appreciate and appraise varied responses to these questions, as well as develop a response of their own.”
  • Introduce and explore their own and other peoples’ beliefs, values and traditions in meaningful and engaging ways (SMSC- spiritual. British Values- Individual Liberty).
  • Develop a deep understanding of the theology underpinning religious beliefs and the ways in which these beliefs are lived out in society, locally and worldwide.
  • Be reflective and examine different codes for living and consider the value of the rule of law, seeing varying worldviews and values where all people are equal before the law (British Values- Democracy, Rule of Law, SMSC- Moral).
  • Develop critical, evaluative thinking skills and consider higher order questioning about identity, purpose and belonging.
  • Work cooperatively and develop confidence by sharing diverse ranges of experiences (SMSC- social).
  • Grow individually and together with sensitivity and respect towards people of all faiths and none (British Values- Tolerance),
  • Be increasingly respectful, open minded, accepting and wondrous about world-wide beliefs and to celebrate diversity of different cultures, faiths and beliefs (British Values tolerance, respect).
