‘The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It’s about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it’s about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together.’ Barack Obama
Our geography curriculum is bespoke and tailored to reflect the diversity of our school, whilst following the expectations of the National Curriculum. We aim, that every child has a high-quality geography education which inspires our children’s curiosity and fascination about the world and its people. We aim to equip our children with the knowledge about diverse places, people, resources, the natural and human environments and to ensure that all of our children can see themselves throughout our geography curriculum.
Over time, we want the children to deepen their geographical knowledge, understanding and skills by exploring relevant fieldwork that reflects their learning and to explain how the Earth’s features have shaped the world we live in today. We want them to be able to articulate their own meaning and understanding of geography and use their knowledge within the wider world.
‘Learning outside the classroom is important for all young people if they are to connect with their local place, find a relevance for the classroom-based learning and develop a meaningful understanding of what environment really means’ Turney 2009
