A high-quality history education will help our pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.
Lincoln Carlton Academy is situated in the up-hill area of Lincoln, close to the centre of historic Lincoln. Our history curriculum is designed to ensure our children develop a deep understanding of the rich history and heritage of their locality and the impact that has had on the traditions and values of the area. Children are given opportunities to investigate and interpret the past, understand chronology, build an understanding of Britain’s past, as well as that of the wider world and to be able to communicate historically. There is a focus on reading, to gain new information and to evaluate the validity of different sources of information. Children will develop a broad knowledge about the city, and county, in which they live and make connections across the curriculum. Children are encouraged to engage with significant events, people, and eras from the past with empathy and respect for difference of opinion.
