“In our changing world, nothing changes more than geography.” Pearl S Buch

  • Geography is sometimes used as a key theme for the term (as is history) but we also aim to ensure that it is integrated into other areas of the curriculum
  • Teaching of geography should ignite pupils natural curiosity for the world around them and be memorable and provide moments of awe and wonder
  • The National curriculum is used to provide a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum; ensuring the progression of skills across school, from Early Years to Year 6
  • Our pupils will be equipped with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life through our approach of school, local, national and global learning
  • Teaching ensures pupils have a good knowledge about diverse places, people and environments

  • Through training, teachers will have good subject knowledge of all aspects of the geography curriculum
