Through our teaching and learning in Geography, we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that Geography teaching is about developing an understanding of our world, through experience, investigation and learning from secondary and primary sources.
Geography helps children to gain a greater understanding of the ways of life and cultures of people in other places. This will help to enable children to take responsibility for their role in society and to develop a caring attitude towards others, animals and plants in our environment. This cultural capital will give them the tools they need to live in our ever-changing world.
