“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
Sir Winston Churchill.
History provides the key for understanding the present. Through enquiry, history enables the acquisition of knowledge about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. History provides the chronological framework to organise and make sense of this knowledge. Through studies of change, continuity and significance, history enables the understanding of how the present came to be, creating analytical citizens who think critically, construct organised narratives of the past and construct reasoned judgements. History promotes empathy, cultural awareness and reinforces the importance of tolerance. This provides a sense of place and a means for interpreting competing representations of the same historical events or individuals. The past is gone and history is constructed, contested and interpreted in different ways and through history we can understand, review and form judgments on these constructs and why they exist.
