Sir Winston Churchill back on UK curriculum

Not sure if this is an anti-dhimmitude reflex or just some kind of a spasm.

Lessons on Churchill: Winston back on the curriculum as schools are told to teach history properly

  • New curriculum published next week will cover major events from the Bronze age to the present day
  • New syllabus says pupils need a chronological narrative of Britain’s history
  • Pupils will be taught about historical figures such as Henry VIII and Queen Victoria

Winston Churchill will be restored to the national curriculum as schools are ordered to teach children about Britain’s history.


The national curriculum for history, to be published by Education Secretary Michael Gove next week, will give all children aged seven to 14 a clear narrative of the major events between the Bronze Age and the present day.

The document, seen by the Mail, will state clearly that every pupil must ‘know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day’.

He was banished from the curriculum in 1999.

The current national curriculum, last updated by Labour in 2007, leaves big gaps in pupils’ knowledge and ditched the learning of significant dates and events in favour of focusing on historical themes.

British institutions: Figures such as Henry VIII and Winston Churchill will be reinstated onto the history syllabus, which will be published next week. British history will take a more prominent role on the curriculum

Mr Gove is insisting that pupils learn about leading historical figures such as Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Oliver Cromwell and Queen Victoria.

Pupils aged 11 to 14 will also be expected to study ‘the Second World War and the wartime leadership of Winston Churchill’, the only modern politician who is mentioned.–Read more

  1. I wonder if this bit will be taught to all the impressionable youts:


    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.

    The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

    -Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50 (London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1899).


  2. Uncle Vladdi,the lefties will no doubt only ”teach” the truths which concur with there fantasies so that extract from Winny will not see the light of day in our schools.

    1. You’re probably right; some leftards here in Canada have invoked the name of Voltaire to endorse islam, despite that he wrote an entire play scorning and openly ridiculing Muhammad.
