Stanbury Village School

Inspirational learning - Aspiration to succeed


At Stanbury we aim to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past.

We teach children a sense of chronology, and through this they develop a sense of identity, and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage.

By considering how people lived in the past, our children are better able to make their own life choices today.

In our school, history makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about the manner in which Britain developed as a democratic society.  

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

Our History teaching focuses on enabling children to think as historians. We place an emphasis on examining historical artefacts and primary sources, and give children the opportunity to visit sites of historical significance such as the Ilkley toy museum, Hadrian’s wall, Murton park and Cliffe Castle. We encourage visitors and experts to come into the school and talk about their experiences of events in the past as well as setting up archaeological digs in ‘the field’ to enable pupils to experience, discover and bring history to life.
