Hertford St Andrew CE Primary School

Love Learning. Aim High. Trust God.


Lead Teacher - Mrs Bond


At Hertford St Andrew we want to bring the past to life for our children. Beginning in the Early Years with that understanding of what happened this morning, yesterday, last week, last year and how they have changed since they were born, right up through KS1 and KS2 where they will begin to learn about the history of Britain and the wider world. Whether it is yesterday, last year, last century or many thousands of years ago, history can help shape children's understanding of the present and how they might be able to shape their futures. Our young historians love to make connections with people in the past - particularly children - and find out how much or how little has changed. By visiting and making connections with our wonderful local historical sites and our fantastic Hertford Museum we can use a broad range of experiences to enhance our in-class learning. 


The key aims of a History education are:

  • Know and understand the history of the British Isles as a chronological narrative
  • Understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world including ancient civilisations
  • Gain an understanding of key historical concepts
  • Make connections and ask historically valid questions
  • Understand how to make historical enquiries
  • Link their knowledge to different contexts
