Social Studies

It is important for children and young people to understand the place where they live and the heritage of their family and community. At various stages of the curriculum, the children study particular topics to develop their understanding of People in the Past, People in Place and People and Society. The children are encouraged to develop skills in researching, recording, reporting, designing, predicting, observing, interpreting and classifying.

Care is taken that breadth and balance is achieved throughout the school year and that no one subject area receives more attention than any other. Programmes of study are used to ensure structure and progression.
