Podcast Episode 7 – Developing the History Curriculum in Primary Schools


Enjoy the latest episode of the Oxfordshire Teacher Training podcast as a respite from the challenges of covid-19. Matthew Coatsworth talks with Will Reeves, Deputy Head at Eynsham Primary School, about developing the history curriculum.

Eynsham Primary was the first school in Oxfordshire to be inspected under the new Ofsted framework, and was praised for its ‘inspiring’ history curriculum. Will explains the school’s intent behind their decision to develop a curriculum that includes a significant element based around the local area and a re-ordering of the national curriculum’s subject content.

This episode is suitable for all – not just those working in primary education. It is the first in a series taking a closer look into a specific subject.
