At Melling Primary School, History forms an integral part of the curriculum.  We believe the study of History inspires children's curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the diverse wider world.  It helps children gain a sense of their own identity within a social, cultural, political and economic background.


Why history is important to all students.  The skills and benefits you gain from studying history.
