We believe that a successful geography curriculum enables our pupils to leave us with a sense of curiosity, fascination and understanding about the world around them.

We want our children to turn the unimaginable (i.e. why do we have volcanoes? What causes tsunamis? What causes migration?) into the understandable. We believe this is the bedrock for supporting our pupils to be informed participants of a global society.

 The intention of our Geography curriculum is for our children to have a growing knowledge of ‘locations, places and regions’ on a local, national and international scale through the study of significant Geographical topics.

Beginning on a local and national scale before broadening to an understanding of carefully selected diverse places, people and resources spanning the globe, this fundamental knowledge of ‘location, place and region’ is progressively built upon through a deepening understanding of Human and Physical Geography alongside the application of key geographical skills throughout all units.

By the end of KS2, our children will begin to appreciate the     influence of both humans and movement of people, enabling them to become geographically aware of the world around them today. We strive for our children to be environmentally sustainable, 21st century citizens, that can begin to appreciate our ever-changing world—something our children will take with them for the rest of their lives.
