A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. Teaching should equip pupils with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, together with a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As pupils progress, their growing knowledge about the world should help them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Geographical knowledge provides the tools and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time. Fieldwork studies should strengthen children’s understanding of their own and wider communities in order to develop a sense of pride and willingness to protect the world around them for the future.
Our School Aims
- In Geography we teach an understanding of places and environments. Through their work in geography, children will learn about their local area and compare their life in this area with that in other regions in the United Kingdom and in the rest of the world.
- Thorough Geography we aim motivate children to find out about the world and enables them to recognise the importance of sustainable development. They will learn how to draw and interpret maps and they develop the skills of research, investigation, analysis and problem-solving.
