Geography

Geography is a key curriculum area which we hope will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world.

 

We 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, understanding and skills provide the frameworks and approaches that explain how the Earth’s features at different scales are shaped, interconnected and change over time.

 

Under the reconstruction of a new curriculum Global Learning will be an underlying theme running throughout our curriculum. We want our young learning to:

  • familiarise pupils with the concepts of interdependence, development, globalisation and sustainability
  • enable teachers to move pupils from a charity mentality to a social justice mentality
  • stimulate critical thinking about global issues, both at a whole school and pupil level
  • promote greater awareness of poverty and sustainability
  • explore alternative models of development and sustainability in the classroom
