St Mary and St Peter Catholic Primary School


At St Mary and St Peter Primary we aim to offer a high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.

trips to local areas will be planned in where appropriate to further support children's understanding and bring history to life. Such as: The Time and Tide museum - learning how to be Stone Age hunters.
