There is consensus within the wider teaching community that, even in 2023, the History Curriculum from Key Stages 1-5 is not sufficiently diverse or representative. This session seeks to explore why this is the case, and why intensive focus from schools, support from Universities and external providers, and reform from the government and regulatory bodies is needed in order to stimulate meaningful change. It will address structural inequalities within British society and how these impact directly on the school curriculum, and will draw on reflections and research with practising teachers. This session will be of interest to anyone who has an interest in representative and inclusive education.  


This session was presented at the ‘PGCE Conference 2023: Inclusion and Inspiration - Education for Social Justice’.
