At St. Thomas’s CE Primary School, our high-quality History curriculum aims to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum in an exciting, inclusive and challenging way.  Teachers will inspire the children’s curiosity to know more about the past, encourage them to ask questions and enable them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the wider world.  The children will gain knowledge and a coherent understanding of people, events and periods in History whilst being provided with opportunities to interpret information from different sources, evaluate historical information and use methods of historical enquiry.

Our History curriculum intends to meet the needs of our children by providing them with the opportunities to understand History within our local area, beginning with their own past and family, in order to gain a sense of their own identity before developing an understanding of Britain and the wider world.
