History

At Oxbridge Lane, we want all of our pupils to have a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.

We teach our children to understand how events in the past have influenced and shaped our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and by doing so, develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem solving.

We are a culturally rich school and we believe that history helps children to understand their own identity as well as other people’s lives and the diversity of societies and relationships.

Our curriculum is enriched with excursions and visits to places of interest. We have a wealth of resources here in the North East available to inspire and motivate our children.

‘We are not makers of history, we are made by history’.  Martin Luther King
