History and Geography
Studying history gives our pupils the opportunity to develop an understanding of why the world and its people are how they are today. Our history curriculum has a key focus on British history and at Rustington CP School, history is taught through both investigation and enquiry. This allows our children to develop an understanding of how History has had an impact on our lives today both locally, nationally and internationally.
We believe History should be an interactive subject that will ignite a child’s natural curiosity, and therefore allow children the opportunity to investigate, handle artefacts, use pictorial evidence, watch historical evidence and visit relevant sites and museums.
At present our curriculum provides a rich variety of topics and allows children to make links with what they are learning and the surrounding areas.

History Progression in Learning
At Rustington Community Primary, it is our intent for the geography curriculum to inspire our pupils with a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. The teaching of this subject will equip our pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments together with a greater understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. This will encourage the children to show their respect for their local, national and international environment.
As our pupils progress through our school and increase their geographical skills, their growing knowledge about the world will help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes. We are dedicated to educating our pupils about global environmental issues such as climate change and equip them with practical solutions that they can implement into their daily lives.
