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. Our staff feel empowered while teaching history because of the wealth of resources we have in our school.
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. As we are a diverse school, it is key for the children to understand and develop their own identities through historical investigation.
Our curriculum is enriched with excursions and visits to places of interest, living in the North East, we have a wide range of places with historical value and meaning which will enrich the children’s learning experiences.
“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” Marcus Garvey.
