Diversity within the curriculum that we teach is extremely important. Schools and communities across our country are extremely diverse and this should be reflected within the content that we teach. History in particular is an area where we can expose children to the diverse nature of the world around them.
The National Curriculum for history states that History helps pupils to understand the complexity of peoples lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
It makes some reference to this diversity, giving the choice of studying the Kingdom of Benin, the early Islamic civilization or the Mayan people as areas of study. There are however lots of areas within the National Curriculum where we can include relevant aspects of black British history. This is an area which has been at the forefront of discussions across the world in recent times, and this course aims to provide a starting point for supporting teachers and leaders to develop a history curriculum which includes black British history.
During the session, we will address:
- Why black British history is so important.
- How it can be included within the primary history curriculum across the school.
- Key figures and events that link to NC areas of study.
- How we can approach some of the difficult aspects of black British history.
