Gloucester Road Primary School

History

At Gloucester Road Primary School we empower our children with a ‘CAN DO’ attitude, embracing our school motto – ‘I CAN DO IT.’ We encourage children to develop their knowledge and understanding of history and aim for all pupils to enjoy and achieve in history and become confident historians.  We follow the Primary National Curriculum for History in England
