The school intends to develop pupils who will leave Greenmount equipped with a coherent knowledge and understanding of the history of Britain and the wider world.

They understand that being a historian means thinking about the past in a meaningful way.

Children will be able to ask perceptive questions, think critically, analyse evidence and form viewpoints using different sources.


The impact is that pupils will leave Greenmount as amazing historians equipped with an understanding of how history has shaped the world that we live in today.


Child-led enquiry questions which guide learning throughout history topics.

Developing historical skills progressively through and between year groups.

“Learning streams” that flow through our learning mountains ensuring that the themes of Religion, Empire, Invasion, Settlements, Monarchy and Gender Stereotypes are explored within different contexts.
