History is an integral part of the curriculum at the Balksbury Federation. We aspire to create an exciting, engaging curriculum to encourage our learners. We believe that by supporting our teaching with trips, visitors and artefact resources, we are enabling our children to become more autonomous, inquisitive learners. Additionally, we strongly believe in an education that focuses on the development of both knowledge and skills and we ensure that children are given the opportunity to demonstrate and apply their understanding in a variety of ways.
