History Conference

Join us for our first Primary History Conference in 2022.

‘Beyond Black History Month’,

delivered by Andrew Wrenn from The Historical Association.

Many schools celebrate Black History Month each year but how can primary history subject leads ensure that black and diverse histories reach beyond that to become part of the mainstream of the primary history curriculum? How can primary history be taught sensitively so that it takes into account the diversity of pupils in all schools?

Comprising a one day conference face-to-face and a follow up half day online, Beyond Black History Month will cover:

  • How to review primary history curriculum maps with examples of medium-term plans and activities that incorporate black and diverse histories into mainstream teaching
  • How to align these to National Curriculum requirements and OFSTED expectations to teach in greater depth
  • How to build in historical enquiry questions that revisit important subject concepts at regular intervals on the basis of a spiral curriculum.


About the facilitator: Andrew Wrenn is a teacher fellow of the Historical Association, the national organisation for teachers of history at all levels. He is an experienced trainer, teacher and writer and an assessor for the Historical Association`s Primary History Quality Mark Award. He was a co-author of the government-sponsored Teaching Emotive and Controversial History 3-19 Report and also steered the association`s Key Stage 2-3 Transition Project.
