Subject statement


At Wistaston Church Lane Academy, we believe that the History curriculum should lay the foundations of an enquiring and questioning mind. We therefore aim to provide children with a secure sense of chronology and historical sequence in order to enhance their understanding of how past events have shaped our world today and of how their own actions will impact the future.


History is taught following our Church Lane Curriculum. It is taught as part of a weekly timetable or in blocks. History units often form the basis of a topic and school visits. Pupils will learn about era’s that have directly affected our local history, and what Crewe and Nantwich looked like in the past.


Ultimately, we believe that the knowledge and skills instilled in our pupils through their historical education will be invaluable in later life. This will enable them to understand how historical events have impacted how we live today.
