Geography is an investigative subject, which develops an understanding of concepts and skills as it builds children’s knowledge of the world around them. Our curriculum provides answers to questions about the natural and human aspects of the world. The topics enable children to develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to other curriculum areas.
The curriculum is designed to ensure that children gain 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 and their place in the World. As pupils progress through the school, their growing knowledge about the world helps them to deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments. Throughout the school, the geographical knowledge and skills are progressive and are sequenced to provide the framework and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, connected and how they have changed over time.
We seek to inspire a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people which will remain with them for the rest of their lives, equipping them well for further education and beyond.
