We use History as a key driver for the majority of our English curriculum; our carefully selected class texts link to History so children can become more aware of life in other time periods through reading and being immersed in both fiction and real life stories. We therefore have a more bespoke approach to History and have recently developed a new progressive History Curriculum, which we are continually evaluating and improving. The latest copy is available here:

In Summer 2023 the school started to utilise the Kapow Primary Curriculum to support the teaching of Geography. This supports our teacher’s professional development in geography, ensures access to high quality planning and resources for all teachers (and therefore reduces workload) and provides clarity of exactly what skills and knowledge are to be taught when (and how this builds on prior learning). Our own bespoke Sharlston Subject Progression document for geography has been developed that closely meet the needs of our children, using adaptations to the Kapow Curriculum if and where needed.
